Anyway, I know that I've done a terrible job keeping my sidebar links up to date, and unfortunately, I don't have time for an update at the moment. However, I think all of you interested in transit or planning (or policymaking) should take a moment right now and visit Human Transit.
Human Transit is one of the best blogs I've come across about general transit planning commentary. It's one of the most valuable entries in my RSS feed. And at about a post a day, the information is quality but which does not overwhelm with volume, which can be a problem on other sites.
Here are a few of the posts that I really enjoyed (in order by date of posting, newest first):
- streetcars vs light rail ... is there a difference?
- vancouver: the great broadway debate
- the power and pleasure of grids
- frequency and freedom on driverless rapid transit
- unhelpful word watch: captive rider
- the "transit isn't green because it runs empty" line
- arrival by train: how end stations differ from through stations
- paris rapid transit: the four levels of nomenclature
