Chris commented on The "T"

We definitely have transit facilities - T and Busways - that are not yet fully utilized and could be. If we took building for transit more seriously.

Chris commented on East of Pittsburgh needs more transportation options.

The eastern suburbs is a huge market for Port Authority. Would an interim step, like dedicated busway-type service, work? Could actually be faster than the T in certain design scenarios.

Chris commented on waiting for transit should be welcoming and enjoyable

So agree! The curbside experience is sooo important. So is the reliability of the service, which has a lot to do with the street's operations itself. Transit needs higher priority in high-capacity corridors. This includes traffic light timing, better crosswalks and shorter crossing distances at intersections, and maybe even queue jumping.

We don't need to wait for BRT to do this.
