$120 Million Dollars could have bought 120 new Silver Line Buses to alleviate congestion in the Seaport for us all. If we had adequate public transit we could raise public parking pricing and decrease overall single passenger vehicle traffic there overall.

    Shadow looms over GE's fortunes - and on state's giveaways to the company - The Boston Globe
    I was interested to read Shirley Leung's Jan. 18 column ( "Jolts at GE won't leave Boston shuddering," Page A1) on the changing prospects of General Electric's big move to Boston. Leung highlights that Governor Charlie Baker spent about $60 million to purchase two buildings for GE, and has set aside another $60 million for infrastructure improvements that directly benefit the company.

The two parcels on either side of Doughboy Doughnuts 🍩 have had their large projects approved this week by the BPDA. Projects are described in the attached article. Of note the Doughboy site is owned now by the Hotel developer. At the request of Impact Advisory Group members the two developments will pay for the redesign and installation of sidewalk widening at the “node” of Dot Ave and W Broadway surrounding Broadway MBTA Station increasing queuing space for bus stops and pedestrian flow. Along with other redesign of this intersection through our advocacy with the improvements coming with South Bay Harbor Trail and redesign around the W Broadway Hotel this block will have tremendously improved pedestrian, bike, and vehicular flow come the end of this year. http://sampan.org/2018/01/residential-developments-in-south-boston-and-east-boston-move-forward/

For all the changes in transportation technology since the first tunnels were dug — the rise of the automobile, the proliferation of bike lanes and ferries, our growing addiction to ride-hailing apps and dreams of a future filled with autonomous vehicles — the subway remains the only way to move large numbers of people around the city.

    The Case for the Subway
    The 4 line in the Bronx. Damon Winter/The New York Times Long before it became an archaic, filthy, profligate symbol of everything wrong with our broken cities, New York's subway was a marvel - a mad feat of engineering and an audacious gamble on a preposterously ambitious vision.
