>Blue Line gets new train cars and gives its old ones to the Orange Line
>Orange Line now has the oldest trains in the entire CTA system with no plans to upgrade

FUCK the CTA. I hate riding the orange line every morning with its 80s fake wood paneling and burned out yellow train lights with discolored plastic light covers.

Insider from the industry here. Ebikes are absolutely going to take over. You have no idea what how big numbers and forecasts are. blabla its a fad blabla. Within the next 5 to 7 years 90% of bicycle commuters are going to use electric. Decreasing costs and increased density are going to make it too tempting not to. We're heading into an unprecedented personal transportation revolution, personal mobility is going to increase a lot, and guess what, its all beautifully simple and easy on the wallet. Ebikes will replace all mopeds/scooters within the next 5 years, and reduce car usage by a good 30-50% in major cities over the next 10 years.

Report Makes Business Case for Vancouver-to-Portland High Speed Rail

No.1363742 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
The report estimated that the line could bring 160,000 jobs to the Cascadia region and more than 350 billion new dollars in economic activity. "Drastically cutting travel time between the cities would also have the knock-on effect of drawing more companies to the region, which the report from the Washington State Department of Transportation argues would generate hundreds of billions of dollars in economic growth," Tyler Orton writes for Business in Vancouver. The new service could also curb emissions if it could tempt car and air commuters to use the train. The report estimates the project would eliminate 6 million tons of carbon emissions.

The planned train would travel at just under 200 miles per hour and be faster than any train service currently operating in the United States.
