Why McDonnell didn't push for Richmond-DC HSR:
Virginia commuters from Richmond to DC would love higher-speed rail, but Virginia nevera even applied
for funding. Why? Governor McDonnell's ideological bent. (Post)
Parking provider picked, has fee:
DC will use ParkMobile
for all its pay-by-phone parking. ParkMobile was running the pilot around Foggy Bottom, Georgetown Hospital and Nationals Park. There will be an extra 30-35¢ fee for each transaction. (WTOP)
Wyman gets profiled:
Lance Wyman, the Metro map's creator and the man tasked with redesigning it, talks about his work and his thoughts
on the map. During the original design, he had wanted distinct icons for each station. (Post)
Watch the "door zone":
A lot of bike lanes fall entirely in the "door zone" where a person riding can get hit by someone opening a door. As Prince George's County plans new bike lanes, how can they minimize this hazard
It's not all families:
Montgomery County has more seniors and more adult children living at home
than ever. These groups don't send kids to school, so when planners suggest allowing something other than single-family houses, perhaps school capacity shouldn't be such a flashpoint. (Rollin Stanley)
