    WANT BETTER BUS AND TROLLEY SERVICE? Talk To Your Mayor!
    Commuter rail has been in the headlines. But it's not really the most important part of our region's mass transit system. About 130,300 people take a train trip each day; nearly 795,800 take a bus, trackless trolley, or the Green Line. Unfortunately, despite the lower media profile, buses and trolleys are performing even more poorly than rail.

    MAKING MORRISSEY BOULEVARD LIVE UP TO ITS NAME: Going Past OK to Really Good
    During the early years of automobile ascendancy, New York's Robert Moses perfected the strategy of using the public desire for parks as a wedge for the creation of "parkways" that were actually an early version of a regional highway system.

    DIGITAL WORLD REQUIRES DIFFERENT ROAD DESIGNS: From Car-Centric Functions to Neighborhood Characteristics
    Today's digital technologies are rapidly changing how the public right of way - our car-travel corridors - are used. The Federal Highway Administration's traditional functional distinctions - highway, arterial, feeder, collector, etc. -- are getting fuzzier.

    REVISITING SULLIVAN SQUARE: When Updating a Plan is a Step Backward
    Situations change and the plans we've made to deal with it have to change, too. But the new plans should be at least as good, at least as effective for dealing with the situation, as the originals.

A VISION FOR COMMUTER-REGIONAL RAIL: Purpose, Technology, and Strategy

    A VISION FOR COMMUTER-REGIONAL RAIL: Purpose, Technology, and Strategy
    Until the 100-inches-of-snow winter of 2014-15 brought the entire 100-year-old system to its knees, and with it most of the regional economy, years of discussion about our state's dependency on the misnamed Commuter Rail system had not broken through the public and politician's unwillingness to raise the large amounts of revenue needed to fix things.

PROTEST, PUSHING, PARTNERSHIP: The Three Phases of Advocacy

LivableStreets Alliance      70 Pacific Street, Cambridge, MA 02139

    PROTEST, PUSHING, PARTNERSHIP: The Three Phases of Advocacy
    Advocacy generally goes through at least three phases: Protesting against what you don't want, Pushing for what you do want, and Partnering with the implementing agency to make sure it's done right and kept going. If we ran the world we wouldn't need to advocate for anything.

    E-BIKES ARE COMING: Improving Our Dangerously Incoherent Policies
    Look down the street. It's not just cars, trucks, buses, bikes, and pedestrians. There is a whole spectrum of new two and three wheeled things on the roll - stand-up scooters, in-line skates, skate boards both manual and motorized, Segways, "personal assistant mobility devices", electric-assist pedal bikes, motorized cargo bikes and pedicabs, mopeds, mini-motorcycles, "smart wheels" that fit onto regular bikes, exploding hoverboards, and other things joining the motor scooters and motorcycles already there.

ADVOCACY FOR THE COMMON GOOD: Action, Organization, and Power

LivableStreets Alliance      70 Pacific Street, Cambridge, MA 02139

    ADVOCACY FOR THE COMMON GOOD: Action, Organization, and Power
    Advocacy is the mobilization of resources and power to deal with societal problems. It combines protest against what you don't want, pushing for what you do want, and partnering with those responsible for implementation to make sure you actually get what you want - although it is the pushing that we most generally think of as "advocacy".

    A GOOD WALK, UNSPOILED: A Few Ways to Improve Foot Traffic
    The cliché is true: every trip begins and ends on foot. The basics of what makes for a good walking experience are pretty straightforward: smooth, wide, unobstructed and well-lit surfaces; stress-free street crossings; pleasing aesthetics; busy but not overcrowded; hassle-free and crime-free areas; opportunities for social or commercial activity; and a way to get to where you want to go.

    Eliminating Killer Trucks: Leveraging the Procurement Power of Government, Non-Profits, and Private Business
    Truck drivers, like most of us, try very hard to avoid hurting anyone. But the deadly repetition of death continues -- trucks are only 4% of vehicles in the United States but cause about 7% of pedestrian fatalities and 11% of cyclist fatalities.

Road Rage Prevention and Deflation: Making Roads Safer for Interpersonal AND Intermodal Interaction

LivableStreets Alliance      70 Pacific Street, Cambridge, MA 02139

    Road Rage Prevention and Deflation: Making Roads Safer for Interpersonal AND Intermodal Interaction
    Road Rage is aggressive anger and dangerous behavior. It carries overtones of self-righteous arrogance and potential violence. It's incredibly scary and deeply disturbing, especially as the number of carried guns and the amount of culture-permeating violence increases. To reduce our chances of becoming the victim - or the initiator - of road rage, we need to de-escalate tense situations.

The Death and Legacy of Bike Culture: An Appreciation

    The Death and Legacy of Bike Culture: An Appreciation
    You don't hear a lot about "bike culture" these days. A decade or two ago it was a hot phrase, denoting the shared camaraderie, courage, outsidership, feeling of rebellion and excitement of being a cyclist in a world that considered you slightly crazy.

    PEOPLE PRIORITY STREETS: Neighborways, Slow Streets, and Safety Zones
    Roads are for moving on. But they are also for being in. There is a growing effort to reclaim the historic role of streets as a neighborhood's collective front yard, a place for people to meet and talk, to sit and look or eat, and for their children to play.

    VIEWS FROM THE HANDLEBARS: The Status and Practice of All-Year Bicycling
    In a break from my usual essay-length postings, here is a series of short comments and questions addressing a variety of bike-related issues: the growing number of all-year cyclists and their need for more bike parking, the changing tone of driver-cyclist interaction in cities and suburbs, the problem of signaling "thanks" to nice drivers and ensuring eye contact through tinted windows, my annoyance at cyclists who hog the road, and thoughts about where bike boxes should be located.

    My father told me that "fixing a mistake is usually a lot more difficult and expensive than doing it right the first time." He was right. And the Seaport District's multiple shortcomings are a case in point - in terms of transportation and nearly every other dimension of sustainable livability.

    PARKWAY DANGER ZONES: Can DCR Turn The Corner?
    If the Legislature and Administration gives the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) the staffing and funds for implementation, the agency's current Parkway Design Study could be a game-changer. The new Urban Parkways and Path Advisory Committee (UPPC) has been providing the recently consolidated Planning & Engineer Departments with lists of particularly dangerous locations and has offered to help them prioritize future road projects.
