Yes, some parts through clayton need to be worked out. There is the Centennial trail part along 170 that's a nice piece to it. (note there is discussion on sorting out the intersection with Delmar since its a bit complicated) Also they are working on connecting Creve Coeur Lake with the Maryland Hei...
Late 90s to 2000 comparison would be interesting. One thing is 9/11 and later dehubbing sapped short haul local demand because you are better off driving due to time difference plus less frequency to any place with execption of Chicago (and even then there's likely a lot less local demand than in th...
Curious if there is any consideration of surrounding areas outside of the main city for these rankings. Since there are a number of suburbs that have rather bike friendly communities and are increasingly connecting with each other. One of the near term ones is connect up the trails around River Des ...
The growth has been about a year and a half consistent and often strong growth. Wonder if some of the growth was lessened last month with the terrible weather at the end, since it would be interesting to know if some months were a bit off one way or the other due to difference in number of cancellat...
Actually from what I can tell there is pockets where some redevelopment in the north side is occurring. One of the things I do in my job is environmental risk assessments for sites in association with bank loans. We have gotten a few northside ones lately, including recently in the area where the Ra...
One question on this I was wondering. is there a possible effect of the NGA development in this? Since i'm not sure how many were displaced and when but that is possibly something that could impact things.
I picture any change in KC will not likely have much negative impact here, on possible reason is a fee issue that could arise where fees rise there. Also isn't longer term a reason for growth with Southwest here is due to maxing out Chicago and Dallas due to space issues? So any growth would involve...
I think the FLL is a normal seasonal thing too. Though hopefully it stays year round this time due to their Caribbean expansion to better connect to those destinations. Also could see them keep it at least 2x a day as preventative move against JetBlue like they did with Boston. Milwaukee is good to ...
It will be interesting with the added gates if they want to see how if it relieves any backups at peak times before adding things to see how much they could fit into peak times. Odd one will be a bit later, which makes me think there is growth planned since why you wouldn't have them all open now. A...
Interesting noting the airport crowding and how dense it can be at times especially during the banks. Could also explain why the need to add amenities in the terminal to handle the crowds. Related a bit to this and referencing the earlier comments about not having a good map of terminal facilities a...
Its a bit of a surprise they did decide to go daily this fast and only a few weeks beforehand. This is generally not something they do. I did take advantage of this and booked a trip for myself since there are intro fare sales for during the week. Interesting is the times of day the flight is, it is...
^ I don't think adding all other counties in the metro you won't get to 500. Which actually brings up another question, is crime rising in the other counties since it might be something worth noting.

Sales for this route must have been doing very well to bump frequency to daily over the summer and this fast in. The ...
Interesting to see how the traffic numbers break down. If i crunch the numbers right it seems growth is well balanced between local demand and connections. Also note for the year the numbers won't look as good since there was one less day this February than last. Just seems local demand is growing a...
^ The pent up demand theory does make sense. Isn't another thing is to note that it seems a wide range of housing types and settings seem to be riding this? There is the possibility of some demographic and migratory trends that have not been found yet playing into it. Possibly leading indicators of ...
^ I was wondering if they were going to add something else with them adding another flight from their Denver base.
Yes, thats exactly when the first arrival bank of the evening comes in from what i put together, when a group of flights from the central states comes in and then leave as flights going east. Also if anyone wants to they can PM me and i could email you my table to see what I made.
It looks like four sizable ones with two morning ones and two evening ones. Also i noticed some definate directional patterns as well. First group of arrivals is a group of places between Mississippi River and Rockies with departures to points east. 2nd morning wave is points east arriving with depa...
I can see this being the case. I actually made a spreadsheet showing the Southwest Departures and Arrivals to illustrate patterns. Unfortunately I don't see any way to upload it here since it does show that as much as Southwest says they don't do banked hub operations, they definitely operate a hub ...
Seems very weird to me to see Southwest add four gates this year while not adding many new flights a day over last year. They would almost have to be planning a noticeable increase in flights not announced yet for next year when planes are available to add flights. Also it could be they want to not ...
I think it would need to be both the Mayor and County Executive to do so (if they can). I think there is one big reason reason they should that people need to think, is that if they can't Eric Grietens and/or Donald Trump might step in and how would people react to that action.
^ Or see this in any other mass transit system anywhere in the world.
I wonder if part of the Panera sale would involve opening up locations overseas? And isn't there a good number of large private local companies that has to be considered in documenting corporate presence here? Since most lists of companies in an area only involve publicly traded ones which will miss...
I could see how this may not be a strong indicator in overall population numbers. One could be removal of registered voters who moved away or died some time before and wasn't cleaned up. Another is it wouldn't pick up children and non-citizens at all. Unfortunately the map doesn't have as a reflecti...
I keep thinking about how much different numbers would look if it wasn't for the overall weakness that has occurred this decade in the Metro East counties. Also wouldn't population in North City have to start decreasing by smaller numbers soon for no other reason than less people to move away? Since...
