"Given that there's no evidence that would be more efficient (or even as efficient) as an extension of the Brown Line, it's easy to conclude that it won't be used, and/or that somebody would not want it."
"Well it is one thing to 'have the right to,' and another to do so safely. In heavy traffic, when I need to 'claim the lane,' I move aggressively to the center of the lane...and then keep watch behind me, making sure…"
"The Lawrence Loop Express Bus could be started next week, digging a subway underground (the only way not to tear apart neighborhoods) could take many years. If there wasn't enough room on the buses, add more busses.

I'm planning a ride STL-Chicago and interested in alternatives to the Route 66 trail.
Hi. I just sent a friend request to ask you a question. A while back you suggested that I use Hwy 12 to shorten my trip across IN to MI. I wanted to find out if you had a preferred route to get there and where you actually get on Hwy 12. Thanks, Jeff.
