Since the current model doesn't work any where else in the city, I'd be curious to hear about any funding mechanism that isn't a regional plan.
There isn’t one.

It looks like they’re getting ready to residewalk and pave 19th as well after the main structure at Corrigan is done. Will there be bike lanes there too?
Nope.

The Lazia grand opening is a tad delayed. They called needing to cancel our Friday night reservations. So we will be trying out XR instead.
XR's menu is very limited. Pizza and antipasto.

I also love the tan brick. It has a nice feel at ground level, too.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

A third operator is in the works. Most likely scenario is the city implements its pilot program (which will replace the interim guidance) with multiple operators. Hopefully there will not be any device caps, or at least the number rises significantly to ensure equitable coverage.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Lyft has launched electric scooters in DC, Santa Monica, and Denver using the same app you use to request a car ride: https://www.lyft.com/scooters This is similar to Uber's approach of renting shared electric bikes (branded Jump) in their app (and Lyft will likely show the Motivate bike share syste...

The vacant lot at 18th & Cherry is under contract.
$1.7 million, "foreign investment group", probably mixed use with a heavy market-rate residential component for that price (if the deal goes through).

This building has been coming up a lot in conversation. I don't think they're quite ready to sell, but someone's advising them.

East 18th is getting repaved now and will finally get the bike lanes that were part of the "downtown loop" project.

This looks great. Didn't even realize that coffee shop was there. Will check it out soon.

And this also reminds me to make it to Splitlog Coffee on Strawberry Hill soon too, another on my hitlist.
Very different vibes, those two. Splitlog is more in the Thou Mayest space.

Re: Westport

Does KCATA have something like a sales team to work with downtown companies to provide company subsidized monthly bus passes? And monthly bus passes now include free 60min bikeshare rides. Bus passes are $40/month at my company; they are willing to do this to cut back on parking spaces needed. Tryi...

Re: Hyperloop between KC and STL

I'm onboard for anything that can take me between KC and StL in 30 minutes for less than the cost of driving. I'd go twice a year just to walk around looking at old buildings. 8) There is sort of. It has 6 wheels and 2 wings. It has a flight time of 30 minutes. Now if you use the IRS cost per mile,...

Any attempt at this will be killed in the legislature due to lobbying by the state's Fraternal Order of Gas Sellers and Convenience Store Owners.
The ignorance about this political reality is astonishing. Once we find out their public funding request, it might not even make it to the legislature.

That coffee shop looks cool. Anyone been in there? I went in over the weekend. It is indeed cool. Very tiny and you can buy pottery! They make their own salsa.
