Blame it on...
Which five U.S. cities are the most pedestrian and transit friendly (Overall, each city must have these qualities throughout the municipality and not just the city center)?
I'm glad he is enthusiastic about a city. It doesn't really bother me. Most people do it also. Mostly Chicago, New York and L.A. forumers, which they have a right to be.^:lol:
Just give it up already, will ya?
I encourage enthusiasm and civic pride toward one's city. But icracked's posts are borderline ludicrious. It's the same old routine with him. Bash San Francisco and praise Honolulu. Honolulu with the best mass transit system in the country? Uh, no. I have nothing against him being proud about his city, but not to the point where he makes exaggerated statements such as that.I'm glad he is enthusiastic about a city. It doesn't really bother me.

Anyway, Honolulu is also thinking about putting WiFi in the buses.
yep. those are the 6 i voted for as well. NYC is in a league all its own. then chicago, philly, boston, DC, and san fran make up the second tier and you really have to include all 5 of them.Sorry, I have to go with six:
New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, Chicago, San Francisco.
Good Lord! The Philly boo birds even boo local mass transit? And I thought the Phils, Eagles, Sixers, and Santa Claus had problems!:banana:I don't see how Philadelphia can be in the top 5. SEPTA is very unreliable and limited. Most people that I know in the Philadelphia area think that SEPTA is bad, even if they're not a "cars=bad, public transportation=good" type of person. The problems with SEPTA form a decent list: service ends at midnight, so bar patrons get stuck having to leave early or take a taxi; limited routes, which means that several areas that need service don't get it, and also that current routes are overwhelmed resulting in trolleys and buses driving past patrons because the vehicle is past capacity; and so on.
^^ You got to be kidding me if your think the Muni system is decent. Seriously. Ask any other San Franciscan what they think about Muni. The only decent route is the number 9 San Bruno IMO....which comes highly offend. The light-rail J-K-M-L-T are like ghosts! They don't and the rest of the muni system come on a fix schedule. And yes, Honolulu does have the best mass transit system in the country, just Google for yourself (honolulu america's best transit system) or better, go to Honolulu sometime this year like I'm planning to. Next question is why would I talk about San Francisco? Well maybe because I LIVE here so I know the inside and outs of the transit systems. Should I talk about a city let's say, Salt Lake City? A city I have no idea about..no.I encourage enthusiasm and civic pride toward one's city. But icracked's posts are borderline ludicrious. It's the same old routine with him.

hahaha....hahaha. it makes sense though, the worlds best transit system, in the world's most predestrian friendly city, which just happens to have the world's best skyline. i've also read that hawaiians have the largest head circumference in the world. can anyone verify this?^:lol:

Uhhhhhuh. Louisville's transit is by no means excellent, but it has all of those features in bold, including, to my knowledge, no graffiti at all. I highly doubt that "Honolulu Hawaii takes the cake, 10 folds." I'm sure its good, but, I mean.. Let's not forget about the continental USA.America's best transit system you say? Honolulu Hawaii takes the cake, 10 folds. American Public Transportation Association has awarded Honolulu's transit with the most rewards. For a city of 390,000 people, there are about 550 buses, a lot of them are already hybrid, all buses are discontinued after 5 years or 200,000 miles of services so buses are in top shape. Not to mention all buses are equipped with GPS (tells you what stop is next and other landmarks around the area such as malls, civic buildings etc..) and they actually run on a time schedule unlike other transits like Muni. The bus part about Honolulu's buses are they are actually very clean, fully air conditioned, almost no graffiti. Also Honolulu buses are heavily modify versions of Gilligs/New Flyer buses, and unlike other transits I have rode on Oakland's AC/ SF Muni etc/ San Mateo's SamTrans.. they use the buses as "is" conditioned that the manufacturers sent them. The city right now is planning a subway/monorail mass transit system that connects Honolulu to Kapolei (nick named the second city).
