Thank YOU for running one of the best transit advocacy blogs. Can’t believe it’s been a year…
Thanks from Seattle – yours is one of the few I read completely each day.
I have to agree with the rest of your readers. After reading High Speed Rail (first and second part) I was hooked. I read it every day.
Thanks for putting in all your time… enjoy your writing a lot!
Congratulations. The graphics in particular are excellent and you do a great job of cross-referencing links. It makes it extremely useful as a reference source, not to mention a good place to exchange ideas.
Thanks for the informative coverage. From your visitor location stats, looks like there aren’t that many more of us reading you here in Hong Kong.
Looking forward to future posts!
Congrats Yonah! Your blog has already become a must-read on transportation in the USA. Your reporting regularly beats the national dailies. Keep it up!
Thanks for all the great coverage – keep up the amazing work.
I’m glad I discovered this blog. The coverage on key transport issues, and projects is spot-on, and informative. Keep it up!
Congratulations! This is a fantastic blog, and I’m glad that I found it.
Kudos from Toronto!
Wait, it’s only been a year? Seems like you’ve been blogging for much longer than that! Congrats and keep up the great research!
Congrats from Boston. I read it everyday from work, sometimes before I check my work related email.
Congrats! I enjoy your map visualizations :) Helps non-urban planners like me thinking of how future public transit will effect the regional areas
Thanks, Yonah! I always enjoy reading your blog.
Great blog, I enjoy reading it, and especially like the maps that are really well made. Keep it up!
Gotta say I’m a big fan. The amount of time you must put into researching stuff and making the graphics is staggering. The graphics are absolute eye candy. You could give apple a run for their money graphics-wise. What exactly is your background? The site has had a lot of interesting reads and ideas. The only thing is I have to say I liked the original color scheme more. I see the feeds section change to links to but the other sites don’t change much anyway. Thanks and keep up the good work.
thanks for a very informative and helpful site—keep it up, please!
Yonah, thanks for all of your coverage. You have a very good grasp of local issues, though it’s a national (and somewhat internation) focus.
I selected your blog for L.A. readers as one of 10 to read for perspectives outside of our area. MetroRiderLA’s founder, Fred Camino, is impressed by the maps you draw.
Congratulations. And thanks for a very good year. Thanks as well to the commentators of many differing views and various expertise. I learn much from the provocative discussions.
I’m not sure it’s correct to say that I love the site, because my relationship has certain characteristics of addiction. But overall, I think it’s good for me. So thanks again.
Top quality work. Saludos from Puerto Rico. Home of El Tren Urbano. If you could ever do a post on why it was so expensive, I’d be greatful.
Keep up the good work!
congrats on a year of great work
