    I seriously think VL will 10x or more its ridership once VLW opens

    LRT Safety

    You mean something like this that we already have in Edmonton? Only that they are non profit and not government. https://www.hiregood.ca/ I frequently see the lot of them picking up litter, monitoring public washrooms etc around downtown.

    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    Very disappointed with the "bike expansion" this year. Most of them will just be wider sidewalks basically in the outer suburbs. I don't think these will convert many new people if any to try cycling than people that already ride these routes. Now instead of riding on the sidewalk, you get to...

    I support getting rid of the 90 min transfer window and instead charge a distance base fare up to a max of $2 to $3 per ride tap on then tap off. I think this would be a fair system and encourage people who only ride 2-3 stops to use the bus

    Today is probably the busiest I have seen of the VLSE going to Churchhill Square. Probably even busier than opening day. Train after train were crowded and full of people between 8 pm to 10 pm.

    Downtown

    Is downtown always this vibrant during new years eve? Today is probably the most vibrant I have seen of downtown around 8 pm. Everywhere is PACKING. Almost all restaurants are full of people and some have to wait outside. The LRTs are full of people train after train. The place was vibing...

    Okay i change my mind. If TransEd can keep this up I'll forgive the 3 year delay. Added frequency is super nice. Ride feels fast, comfy, quiet and smooth af with barely any stopping even past Davies station to MillWoods. This is probably my favourite rail transit line that I rode aside from the...

    Edmonton's National Standing

    Seeing how Edmonton barely gets mentioned in any urbanist YouTube videos, I always wonder if Edmonton is actually overlooked or if we are just in an echo chamber and hyping ourselves too much on this forum.

    Lol...If you really think like this...I honestly have no words. I think you are taking this WAY too seriously and need to take a break from any urbanist media and movement for the sake of your mental health if you actually reacted like this. It almost feels like you are getting radicalized by...

    It honestly doesn't feel slow at all when you ride it. It has quick acceleration and does keep up with traffic beside it

    Valley Line LRT/ Valley Line West | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    I don't think I understand what you meant. The station is literally in an open space. If there is an evacuation due to things like a fire or explosion, people can just run away from it very easily to either end of the station to safety. Even if you get trapped from both ends of the station, you...

    Valley Line LRT/ Valley Line West | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    After riding it again and calming down from the hype, I think I still prefer the high floor LRT overall. High floor trains are a bit faster as its completely grade separated. Train quality wise once you ignore the cleanliness of the trains, they both are very close, the high floor lrt is more...

    LRT Expansion Planning

    I think they pulled it off surprisingly after my first ride

    Valley Line LRT/ Valley Line West | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    I thought the trains stopping at the lights would have bothered me more than I thought. But the trains have nice acceleration and feels appropriate in speed (not too fast but also not too slow). The doors feel aggressive though and close fast when ur trying to wait for ppl to get off the train...

    This take is a bit extreme...a $100 gift card from the city's budget is probably worth as much or even less than a penny and would probably come from the city's promotional budget. promotion is not propaganda.

    Let's wait and see how many daily riders there are first once the hype dies down before talking about less than 5 min frequencies and extending the trains. Too early to tell if there is be a need for higher capacity right now
