A Few Questions-

February 5, 2009 at 6:57 am 1 comment

Thank you to those who check in on the blog every once in a while, I’ve been swamped with school work lately so I haven’t had an opportunity to add any new posts! – I do however, have several projects to talk about.

I’m doing some research for a project and was wondering if anyone could answer a few questions for me;

-Do you take public transit?

-What do you think it would take for the common Londoner (maybe even yourself) to take public transit in London?

-How do you feel about existing high density within our city?

 -How do you think high density residential should be distributed throughout the city? What should it look like?

 

Thanks,

JrUD

    1) I have not been on a bus since May of 2006.

    2) More buses more often, to ensure that I am not standing in the cold waiting for a bus for more than 5-10 mins at a time.

    3) High Density is, for the most part, to sporadic. The idea of concentrating high density in specific areas is much more conducive to the health of a good public transit system. For example, concentrating all high density development at certain ‘nodes’ would be best for public transit. Easy to access the main rodes if your 12-15 storey building is mere steps for a transportation hub/transit stop.

    4) See answer 3.
