Wellington readers: Here’s a remarkably thoughtful piece (and not just because it quotes me) on the network plan that I worked on. It’s also cross posted here. Attached are a few comments that people like me live for. For example:
The proposed changes to service to my corner in Brooklyn will have a revolutionary effect on my life, essentially making public transport a viable option, where it is not right now. I am quite excited and hope these changes go through.
You’d be surprised how touching this sort of comment can be to a network designer, even one who’s been in the transit trenches for 20 years. It really is all about humans.
