    1. Yes, definitely, do something with the PE right-of-way! Bellflower has done a wonderful job with theirs, as has Santa Ana with the Maple St pathway. Check out the Inland Empire line, too, easily accessible from the Montclair transit center and running eastward from there. Whittier Greenway is another out-of-service railline bikeway, with half-formed plans to run it to Brea. Yorba Linda also has one, although that one comes to an awkward end in a residential area with no clear directions for getting somewhere recognizable for non-residents of the area.
    2. Pacific Electric is not hyphenated; it’s two separate words.
    3. That station in Anaheim is ARTIC, not ARCTIC.

    Thanks Andrew, Erin and Councilman Jones for your continued commitment to this vital issue. Bikes, trikes and NO automobiles. SlowTranspo lanes! Those right lanes, I’m looking at you. More bikes, less cars in town. Woohoo-yeah!

      I hate bikes, better bus connections and Uber, Lyft. I think that since the population is getting older instead of younger more shuttles to stores or the doctor like they are doing in Lake Forest. The bike people are just too much on everyone has to have a bike. personality, the road system could have less traffic with cars in the future why pushed everyone to bikes. This is where I agree with the conservatives they are right there is a war on the burbs and its the bike crazy people that are leading it.

        Conservatives who conserve are out there you know. They hug trees, have working urban farms like hippies and hate Exxon and Monsanto. They also know for darn sure that government grabbed farm land to profit from and control masses, and generations later, heed their farmer grandparents’ words … never fully trust the government. Trust but always verify, and be ready to sue. Ask any American Indian nation holed up on a reservation, “Howz that working out for ya?”

        That being said. The slow lanes. No cars. Only bikes, trikes, mopeds, golf carts, horses. Life will be better with slo lanes for a slower life out of da rat race in the Republic.

    “Still, investing in bicycle facilities doesn’t always pan out. In Anaheim, officials spent more than $185 million dollars on a new train station, ARCTIC, billing it as a future transportation hub. Despite the spending, ridership has fallen far below original projections and the facility operates on a deficit.

    The Transportation Authority also piloted a bike share program in Fullerton aimed at getting riders mile to and from the train station, but the program was scrapped after a year when it failed to attract enough riders”

    ARTIC and Bike Nation. Two dismal failures. Can anybody think of a common link?
