    ETS Bus and General Transit Improvements

    Surprised Horse Hill is so low given Evergreen trailer park which is served by the 121 has a significant number of housing units in Horse Hill (maybe the majority?) although it will dwindle as more neighbourhoods are built. Marquis East with its planned mix of housing units (mostly townhomes...

    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    So the NE LRT shared path was relatively bustling this morning. Quite the scene crossing 95 St with 7 other cyclists on the walk signal. Hopefully showing people that cycling in Edmonton is very doable. Not sure about today but yesterday our office bike parking was quite full. This too hot...

    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    I want to argue Vancouver's a bit. They have segments of protected BC Parkway along the Expo Line. Also they may not have a huge network of protected bike lanes but they do have bikeways that almost act like crosstown bicycle arterials although drivers will find it difficult to impossible to get...

    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    Finally had a chance to look through the Wihkwentowin plans. Love it so far. Especially closing the entire street next to Paul Kane although does it all need to be green space? Maybe a basketball court that could be used as a little popup farmers market weekend mornings. I know there's already...

    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    One SUP that's not on Google Maps yet is the one along the south Yellowhead retaining wall, from 89 St to 81 St. Not sure if it extends further east but 81 St is a designated bikeway and 89 St will tie in to the new 124 Ave bike path heading west to Blatchford Gate. My only quibble about that...

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

    Our firm acquired a smaller firm in which there is an office on the south side and some of the staff in our downtown tower are basically begging to work out of that south side office instead of trying to absorb the new staff into our downtown tower. So I see that push. Running LRT to every outer...

    Jasper House | 108m | ?s

    Looks like it was rendered in Minecraft. I do like it though. It's like the flow of the river. We have a decent stock of standard boxes, bring on interesting architectural features.

    Cycling and Active Transportation in Edmonton

    Good, my kids will hopefully stop bugging me to take them to BC because Alberta is supposedly lame for mountain biking.

    Arc Smart Fare System

    Oh my kid's school switch from paper monthly passes to loading passes on Arc Cards. $55 a month and my kid is using transit A LOT now so I got it. How it works is that even though his Arc card is on my account, Capital Region Partners is assigned as an agent who loads the pass on there. I had to...

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

    That video might even be from summer 2022. This is a photo I took in October 2022. And a couple of weeks ago.

    LRT Safety

    Anecdotal experiences are more powerful than people realize. I stopped taking Vancouver Skytrain after repeated incidents over a 6 month period that turned my 1 hour commute into 3 up to a whopping 6 hour commute. I didn't get home until 11pm on the worst of it. 99.9% reliability means little...

    Blatchford Development | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    I thought I had posted these. I rode through Blatchford last week and they had made progress on 119 Ave. Curbs underway east of the tracks, general prep underway west of the tracks.

    LRT Expansion Planning

    Skytrain rarely attracts riders who have more than one full-size luggage. The flex areas intended for wheelchairs and bicycles when unused can be used by travelers with luggage or as extra standing room during rush hour.

    LRT Safety

    I took the C-Train during the PM rush yesterday. Holy it was packed.

    Capital Line LRT

    As a north sider, I don't think it's fair that south side doesn't have a free park and ride at their LRT stations currently, well other than Davies but that's quite out of the way for the SW. Heritage Valley is just as important as Lewis Farms and Castledowns. The current bus connection adds at...

    Arc Smart Fare System

    Seems like they only wait about an hour 45 minutes after tapping on now to assume you're off the vehicle and didn't tap off. Prior to this, the missing tap fare was charged the next time you boarded. Between this and the increased tap speed, I do appreciate the behind the scenes work they've...

    Yellowhead Trail Upgrades

    I think with all they've done to connect that industrial area north of YHT to Fort Road, 66 St will be fully closed during construction. Maybe preload/piles in 2025 and then the overpass itself in 2026. I do feel a little bad about the businesses south of YHT sort of getting orphaned for the...

    Blatchford Development | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    I tried to make sense of which roads they are currently paving. By paving I meant the curbs are mostly up and they’re still working on the base layer. 119 could be the first intersection built out into NAIT based on construction activity on both sides of the track but it’s still largely dirt at...

    Blatchford Development | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    Good route choice. 113 St is already marked with sharrows south of 109 Ave. I was looking at ways to get from Blatchford to the designated Inglewood School and things are perilous at the moment.

    Warehouse District Park

    I lost count how many times the weather changed in that clip.
