Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Great transit marketing wrt the price of gas

(Except that long term, gas is likely to be relatively cheap, so long as cheap is defined as less than $3 per gallon.)

blogreader hstll sent this along, which is a promotion by the San Luis Obispo (County) Regional Transportation Authority.

The price of gas has *never* influenced my decision to take transit vs driving (I own a car). It is 1) time 2) cost of parking. Given that gas prices are cheap and probably will be, transit agencies need to update their marketing approach. They aren't competing against the cost of gas, they're competing with the convenience of Uber, or a private car.

Yes to the first comment.

However gas prices in California -- and premium gas almost everywhere -- is pretty pricey. Well over $3.*

Will be interesting with the death of one Koch brother -- and the probable death of the other in a few years -- on how that will apply to various transit tax increases.

* I do agree that you probably don't see much change in transit usage until the 4 or 5 range.

Price of gas probably makes a difference for long distance commuters. But it appears as if gasoline prices will remain "low" for the foreseeable future. Especially if there is a price for parking.

So yes, marketing against the price of gas doesn't make sense. Particularly for shorter range trips.

agree about the Kochs. I haven't read the Post article about Phoenix light rail yet. DK what is up there. Until the last year or two, there had been strong support. But I think last year, maybe the year before, they did cancel an extension.

Def good comments, glad to see!

Transit is just not compelling in a lot of scenarios right now.

We did go 10 miles or so for 1.75 each, good deal. Uber back for 4 ppl was only 17 bucks so eh. And no traffic at all but bus was 7 mins late. Idk

Both Adderall and Vyvanse are a central nervous system stimulants. ...The difference between the drugs is Adderall contains amphetamine salts (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine), whereas Vyvanse contains lisdexamfetamine, which the body converts to dextroamphetamine before it is active, meaning it's a "prodrug."
Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and binge-eating disorder. Includes Vyvanse side

Suboxone is a prescription medication that combines buprenorphine and naloxone. It's used to treat opioid addiction. (Heroin and narcotic painkillers are common opioid drugs.) Buprenorphine belongs to a class of drugs called opioid partial agonists, which help relieve symptoms of opiate withdrawal.
Suboxone strips next to the Suboxone box. If you're reading this then you're probably already considering some form of opioid maintenance therapy

chronic pain lasts longer than acute pain and is generally somewhat resistant to medical treatment . It's usually associated with a long-term illness, such as osteoarthritis . In some cases, such as with fibromyalgia, it's one of the defining characteristic of the disease. Chronic pain can be the result of damaged tissue, but very often is attributable to nerve damage.
