Streetcars, Trams, Light Rails.  Call them what you may, but these devices resolve the simple task of effectively moving people around densely populated urban centers.  In the spirit of keeping the Miami streetcar alive (which I assure you will not resemble the picture below) this week with a swift defeat of Norm’s frivolous lawsuit against the Miami mega plan, we bring you today’s Pic o’ the Day.  Can anyone name this city?

This is what our downtown streets should look like.  Compact, connected by transit, and very pedestrian accessible.  Can anyone name this city?

We’re running a couple days off, but let’s see if anyone can identify this urban pedestrian street. I’ll reveal the answer tomorrow or provide a hint later tonight…

Sorry about the sluggish pace of the website lately folks, it certainly isn’t because of a lack of information this week, but rather the time…

Tonight however, I am headed to Manhattan to get my winter dose of Urbanism…

If the view above seems familiar, its probably because you’ve been sitting in traffic for 50 extra hours per year.

“Americans sat in traffic 4.2 billion hours, or 38 hours per driver, in 2005, up from 4 billion in 2004, according to the transportation research center at Texas A&M University.”

Today’s Transitography comes from one of our own readers (Join and add your own photos.) The Athens LRT, is one of the city’s more modern transit lines, opened in 2004.

Transit systems like this will become impossible to construct in the US if Federal funding is switched to also include HOT lanes.

We’re beginning a new daily segment here on TransitMiami.com which will feature daily photos of all mode of transportation from all over the world. We’ve created a Flickr group for interested members to join to share their photos with us, which hopefully will one day be featured here on the site.

I’ve spent the better part of the past 5 days traveling throughout New York and Canada, articles will reappear later today as soon I as I recover… Here is a view of one of my recent traveling delays at JFK. We taxied in line of jets for an hour, waiting for 40 planes to take off before we were given the go ahead. Looking back, these were just a fraction of the planes waiting behind:
On the plus side, I did eventually get a pretty nice aerial view of Manhattan:

Two of my favorite local amateur photographers, James Good and Miami Fever, each recently took stabs at photographing hot cars under the MacArthur Causeway. You decide which shot is better:
