LegoC Transpo, Lego-Train


Just a funny awesome transit-related news item from late last week: A Lego Public Transport Station. And they've got it right: Multi-modal system, complete with streetcars, buses, bike racks, parking, and... well, a street sweeper, for some reason. I'll be honest, I want one, although $139.99 is a little out of my price range.

I'd hand one over as a christmas Present to whoever wins the next Election, and takes charge of Public transit here in Ottawa to play around with, along with a map of Ottawa. maybe it'll help them make ENLIGHTENED decisions !

Wow. Lego comes up with a transit station with shelter for passengers.

How come the city just re-opened downtown Bus Crappid Transit stations, before the shelters arrived? (They did the same thing last year when they opened temporary Baseline station, also sans shelters.)

A transit station that is ready for vehicles, but not passengers, is not ready.

The worst part is the shelters are better designed. They cover the users all the way to the bus.

Out of my price range as well for the moment. But hopefully not so for others reading this!

Dean, the solution is obvious: give LEGO the contract to build any additions or retrofits to Ottawa's transit system.

It's pretty sad that a toy company can do better than a transit company.
