Not quite an LTE and not quite local (we know we can bike there in 24 hours, right?) but another bonehead trying to look smart.

Looks like the North Shore Trail is getting a new name.

I am a Pittsburgh native, but I live near Baltimore.  Here is the perspective on the WaPo article, from WABA.

I responded to the Trib article.

This concerns me, as I own property in Hempfield, I ride a bike for transportation, and ride in accordance with PA traffic law. If you encounter me on the road, I fear you will think I am this other guy, and wish to do me harm.

Can we be clear what 75-3301c1 means? Yes, a cyclist may occupy the full lane on a two-lane road. Even if we are in the right-most inch of the lane, you still have to cross halfway into the oncoming lane to pass us, so our position within the lane makes no difference. Just change lanes and pass. Yes, you may legally cross a yelow line to pass a cyclist if visibly safe to do so, same as driving around a downed tree. On a 4-lane road, the cyclist uses the entire right lane; you pass in the left lane. Got it?

PAAC buying 2 plug-in electric buses for testing. Will be out of the East Liberty garage. Will get them by September. Goal is to test them and to see if would be feasible to use on the BRT.

Will these buses appear on the 75 by any chance?

Why train travel between PGH and phily takes so long. Good primer on who owns what rails and getting access to rails vis a vis rail issues and rail trails. A bit tangential to the message board but still interesting.

Will there ever be high-speed rail service between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia?
