Re: “Halifax council rejects Skye Halifax proposal

@Bo Gus: in tragic haligonian fashion, you're prepared to lower standards for some quick cash. Seriously. People need to start asking for more professionalism from the development community. The city has potential to be amazing. Skye halifax's renderings looked like they took 10 minutes to pop out. The design was dated from the beginning, so imagine ten or 50 years from now. With that much money being thrown around, you'd think they could hire decent architects to do a proper job. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.

Re: “Transit plan: not perfect, but necessary

I think that ridership would increase if the bus litterature was less obscure.
Convoluted signage for routes that are poorly advertised shows a lack of resolve and thought on the part of transit officials.
Seriously, we went to the frigging moon.

Re: “Streetcar desires

Maybe its time we stop waiting for other cities to show us how to do things. Halifax is unique in many aspects, including some fundamental ones such as topography and geology. Subways are out; obvious if you've ever strolled down that beautiful cross section of a railway cut that lines the northwest arm. And furthermore, the peninsula is tiny and houses only a fraction of it's daily workers/commuters.
Naturally then, a perfect Halifax transit strategy is difficult at best.
I cannot, however, excuse how unbelievably unintuitive taking buses and ferries can be in this city. Depending on the time of day, there can be as many as 25 different bus routes travelling along Barrington Street. How many of us regularly see bus tailing bus after bus, with little or no passengers?
Something's gotta give.
