i am sorry for out of topic question. Is there any other forums like yimby dedicated to infastructure( highways, rail, bridges)
The Greyhound bus terminal on Filbert Street has closed.
The new set-up for Greyhound involves dropping off and picking up passengers right on Market Street near Independence Hall.
This is the stupidest thing ever and I can’t understand why it was allowed.
Seems like they could find room for a terminal around 30th St station.
This is such a train wreck -
What’s happening in Philadelphia will happen in other places, including Chicago.
Greyhound recently left its Philadelphia station to join other intercity bus services on the curb, creating headaches for riders, businesses and local officials. Other cities are in a similar position — or will be soon.
Also, there’s a plan to reconnect the railway station to the subway station at 30th Street. Right now passengers have to exit outside and cross the surface street to connect between the two. This has been the case since the pedestrian tunnel was shut down in 1984.
Currently, travelers must navigate a busy street that funnels car traffic off I-76, without any signs offering clear direction.
