The IPCC Report states that “shifts to public transport can enhance health, employment, and can elicit energy security and deliver equity.”

I commend the @bcndp for promoting a greener future by enabling transit-oriented development through #Bill16 1/ #bcpoli #Transit
Bill 16, the Transportation Amendment Act, grants the BC Transportation Financing Authority the ability to acquire and improve land that supports the development of #housing and amenities near transit stations. Known as Transit-oriented developments (TOD). 2/ #bcpoli #Transit
TODs can include: childcare centres, shops and commercial services, schools and healthcare centres, educational facilities, public gathering spaces, and recreation centres. These developments are fundamental, particularly among intersecting crises. 3/ #bcpoli #Transit

Taking the #Cowichan Valley Commuter to #Victoria & back is going to cost you $20 a day.

It only runs in the early morning & evening. It runs 1.5 hours before school starts - no good for parents.

25k cars drive the Malahat per day. This is a policy failure. 1/ #bcpoli #Transit
For the vast majority of people, a car is the only option to get between #Cowichan and #Victoria. This is one example of what is clear for many communities: transit is neither affordable nor accessible for many British Columbians. 2/ #bcpoli #PublicTransit
Premier @jjhorgan told BCers to use BC’s “sophisticated public transit systems, if (gas) prices become too unaffordable in the short-term.”

I asked Minister of Transportation @Rob_Fleming if he considers the cost of the #Cowichan Valley Commuter bus to be affordable? 3/ #bcpoli

Oh wow, liebe @ORF @radiofm4 @fm4stories.

Dieser Artikel ist sehr schlecht.

Die Screenshots sind komplett falsch interpretiert (die Dicke der Striche sagt nichts aus über Kapazität/Traffic, sondern meint die Zahl der über diesen Pfad präferierte Präfixe).

#Thread 🧵
Viele Präfixe bedeuten keineswegs viel Traffic. Im Gegenteil: 80% des Traffics eines typischen Eyeball Providers kommen von nur so ca. 10 ASN. Also 10 Quellen.

In westlichen Ländern sind das u.a. Apple, Facebook, Netflix, Akamai, Microsoft, Google und noch so zwei drei.
Das gilt grundsätzlich auch für russische Provider, auch wenn dort die Hauptquellen des Traffics andere sind, zB. Vkontakte statt Facebook.

Diese Quellen beliefern Traffic von relativ wenig IP Adressen oder Präfixen. Also im Schema nicht dargestellt oder nur mit dünnen Strichen.

The 3-day finale of #yyccc 2017-2021 was lit!!! It’s hard to believe the writers were able to get so many great things resolved. Also, so many cool things have been set up for the next show: 2021-2025 (which will start filming on Oct 18). Here’s my recap of the highlights: 1/24
The finale opened w emotion: 1) #yyc-based members of the #TokyoOlympics/#TokyoParalympics #teamcanada were honored. 2) tributes to the retiring members of #yyccc, @DruhFarrell @EWoolleyWard8 @ChahalGeorge @Ward4Ward1 @CouncillorKeats & @nenshi, induced tears & good vibes. 2/24
After almost exactly 4yrs of work initiated by my learning about #BenefitDrivenProcurement @FCSSAAoffice’s AGM right after the 2017 #yycvote, getting an NoM passed by #yyccc, & development shepherded by @momentumcalgary’s @HareCourtney, we’ve approved a great policy!!! 3/24

Whys #NavPancham considered generally good?#NavPancham is #Genesis, #Progression, #CauseEffect relations. In #KaalPurush #Kundali, if #Jaatak is denoted by #Lagan, his/her progeny is denoted by the #PanchamBhaav while the father of this #Jaatak is the #NavamBhaav of the #Chart...
Many ancient #Astrologers have expressed that a #Bhaav can find #Catalyst 5 houses behind itself or 9 houses away from itself (same thing).

So in effect if there is any good connection of the #Navam #Bhaav with the #Lagan (or #Navam #Bhaav from any other #Bhaav) ...
the particular #Bhaav in question can get #SuPrabhaav. The #Lagan or any other #Bhaav is always the #PanchamBhaav from the #Navam.Hence the theory- #NavPancham, is generally considered #YogKaarak.

Basic theories apply as always...

Was doing #Gochar #Transit analysis for a #Libra #Jaatak #Kundali when I stumbled upon a very powerful #Astro event taking place in ALL #Libra #Charts but also potentially quite damaging for the #Jaatak if their #Natal #Chart or #Lagnesh is weak...
#Mars would be around 25* in the 6th #Bhaav, looking into the #Lagan with 8th #Drishti where #Laganesh #Venus would also be placed with similar #Degrees. #Mars/#Venus are not just antiparties, they are also #Enemies to one another and hence this #Vedan is not the best
#Rahu, placed in the 8th #Bhaav of the #Chart would also be having similar 25*. In #Taurus, dispositor of #Rahu is #Venus. #Rahu and #Venus having similar strength, #Rahu becomes very powerful and #Malefic for the time being

Let's have a mini-thread before council and talk about how I came up with the bus lines for my Sustainable Seattle Transit Map. #Seattle #transit #GreenNewDeal Image
So when I got to the point of having laid out the majority of the light rail stops (focusing on having all of Seattle within a mile of a stop), with pushing to get every part of the city within a half mile of frequent transit, I knew it would take too much time and money...

2/6
...to do that with light rail alone. In addition, we have arguably the best bus system in the US, and with that amount of existing infrastructure I thought: why not just upgrade some existing routes to be super frequent?

A thought on #NYC: the city isn’t dying, but it has problems: the cost of living is too high, #incomeinequality is rampant, and the city’s blood runs through its #transit system. Some things to consider:
(1) The #rent is too damn high, the residential market is distorted, and despite a 10% decline in #Manhattan rents they are still among the highest in the country #housing nytimes.com/2020/08/18/nyr…
(2) Some people are leaving the city. #Housing demand in the #suburbs can shift back to the city, but the suburbs make more sense for families now nytimes.com/2020/08/30/nyr…

there is a tradition of taking dips in holy rivers on the day of Sankranti. Sun God, Lord Vishnu and Lord Narsimha Swamy are prayed on the this occasion. Nariyal Abhishek (coconut water) is performed on this day. #Suntransit through its own sign will have different impacts

on all signs. Sun is the planet of dominance, authority, government, societal honour, self-confidence etc. Leo is the natural 5th house of zodiac. It stands for romance, love, creativity, joy and children. Sun is a fierce planet & Leo is a fiery sign. Therefore at tatva level

$154.8m for a new travel lane for motorists in each direction.

Sure hope we can get @NashFinance to release to @NashvillePW the $75-$100k it would take to add a protected bike lane to 3rd Ave N for a new modal pathway downtown!

#CompleteStreets infrastructure is safe and cheap.
@NashFinance @NashvillePW This is the perfect time to offer better infrastructure support for a mode that’s seeing a surge in demand, especially when it’s so inexpensive, already fully planned, and requires no more procedural work.

Teen wearing head scarf punched repeatedly in alleged hate crime on Vancouver bus, police say thestar.com/news/canada/20… via @TorontoStar @starvancouver @TransitPolice #racism #transit
Transit police in Metro Vancouver are asking for the public’s help identifying a suspect who allegedly repeatedly punched a 17-year-old girl wearing a head scarf on a bus, after mocking the teenager’s ethnicity. thestar.com/news/canada/20… @TorontoStar @starvancouver #racism
The suspect's attacks partially knocked the teen's head scarf off before her mother and a fellow passenger were able to separate them. A good Samaritan who followed the suspect off the bus was beaten and threatened with a knife. thestar.com/news/canada/20…

What is the impact of #COVID19 on mobility in different economies? A thread!
Low-income countries in Africa and Latin America show that COVID-19 disrupts the mobility to #transit the most. In Asia, mobility in low-income countries for all destinations is highly affected. (1/4) Image
Comparing mobility impact due to #coronavirus for low, middle and high-income countries shows that the overall change is the lowest in the poorest countries. It can be interpreted that people in low-income countries have less possibilities to change their travel behavior. (2/4) Image
Data from a week later (5 April) shows that the #COVID19 impact on #mobility has increased! Almost every income group and every region experiences the strongest negative impact on the mobility to transit stations. (3/4) Image

Need your help.
Went to my local bike store today, + they told me they're closing as of midnight tonight. The premier of #Quebec has declared them "non-essential" (while keeping auto shops + government-monopoly liquor + cannabis stores open).
In neighboring province of #Ontario, they remain open, as in NYC (in spite of fact that @BilldeBlasio is fantastically un-woke on sustainable transport).
At a time when many people don't want to take #transit for risk of getting sick, bikes are individualized transport to people who have to get to work safely, with safe physical distancing. (Especially true in #Montreal, which has lately built great separated bike lanes).
