Re: Site UI, UX and formatting

Seriously, what can we do to fix the coathanger abortion of a user interface this forum has now? What exactly is the purpose of the "Dm" black bar currently obscuring part of the text entry box I'm using right now? Why is the banner at the top of the page so ludicrously huge? Why do I have...

Re: Deep Ellum: Epic ~ Knights of Pythias Temple

Hard to believe DART, the city or any entity would just get rid of a station on this side of Deep Ellum. It's not hard to believe at all. That station gets almost no passengers when you look at the numbers. It also doesn't serve Deep Ellum nearly as well as the Baylor station does. Shutting it down...

Re: Downtown Dallas: Retail

Neiman's has been owned by outsiders for decades. If the downtown store wasn't a net positive (including the positive impact on the overall brand) it would have been closed long ago.

Re: Dallas Love Field Airport

Here's a fun Jetrail video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Q5T1_sUy1s Building some sort of people mover from the terminal to Bachman Station seems inevitable, but I really don't understand why all the concepts are in a tunnel.

Re: DART D2 Subway

Having an alignment that is under 3-4 blocks away from the current alignment is just pointless and wasteful. The only alignments that make any sort of sense or Young and Wood. lol classic DART thinking. Instead of serving any one area extremely well we always choose to provide mediocre service to t...

I'd bet you a hundred bucks that they have hired consultants to perform that analysis and they disagree with you.
