I travel to Amsterdam each day by train for work.
I feel such embarresment when I see tourist lost and trying to find the right train to Schiphol Airport.
The Dutch Railways should pick up on these signals and improve the station and platforms.

My train departs across from the one that goes to Schiphol airport.
I tend to stay at the station 3-4 hours each day after work, pointing tourists in the right direction.
Till I'm too tired and hungry and I go home.

At home I'm too tired to cook and I eat a bowl of yohurt with fruit and go straight to bed.

some people are timid travellers and, when travelling, a mistake can lead to being yelled at by someone whose language you do not speak well. or, the nightmare scenario where you miss your stop, and watch where you *should* be pass by the window. i feel it's unfair to say 'durrrr works for me, therefore everybody else is retarded'.

how do i find my bike in the parking structure
>>
>>1799559
The problem is this
> Amsterdam has 15 platforms
> One end is the "a" end, the other end is the "b" end (see picture i posted)

Solution
> Put clear arrows on the floor point to the "a" and "b" ends of the platform
> Have a staff member on the platform with a vest "can I help you"
> Clearly mark that the platform that goes to Schiphol aiport. 14a is the express train and 14b is the commuter train.

OP here, I'm a little creeped out. Almost as if the Dutch Railway company browses 4chan. Today and yesterdag there were staff on platform 14 with vests "can I help you?" in several languages.

Late-stage capitalism has long depended on creating as many markets and marketable entities as possible, to exploit. This has led to nonsensical levels of forced individualism, where the mere act of having to acknowledge the existence of others has become offensive in the minds of some.
One has to enshrine oneself in a personal vehicle, excluding oneself from their surroundings. One has to buy a separate house, preferably a unique McMansion, completely separated and detached from the surrounding buildings and community (if there is any). One has to oppose any kind of shared facilities or mutual support, be they unions, parks, public transport, or social security. After all, they might get in their way somehow and, even worse, they'll benefit someone else. Hell, one might have to use them WITH others!

So, NO to hanging clothes outside.
NO to kids playing out in the street.
NO to actually solving homelessness, just push them out of sight.
NO to acknowledging the humanity and soul of your suffering fellow man.
NO to building shared buildings with facilities for all.
NO to functioning infrastructure and transportation. Somebody might actually get somewhere without actually having to! They might enjoy getting around so much they wander into YOUR sight!

Then perversely he christens his isolation, this self-assembled prison made out of ideas which were so grandly marketed to him, as "Freedom". Later he wonders why he is suffering physically and spiritually, why he feels so alone.
And the next salesman comes knocking with his snake-oil and band-aids... Or a scapegoat and a fistful of bullets.

because thameslink is a commuter rail service, designed to transport people from suburbs and dormitory towns into skyscrapers where they form the bedrock of the global economy (making debt instruments too complex to be understood and selling them to each other, thus generating value somehow). thameslink isnt its own separate THING, as it was formed by the usual process of upgrading existing lines and services, and glomming old/disused lines together, and calling the service that runs on top of those new/upgraded lines "thameslink".

crossrail, on the other hand, was built to relieve capacity on the current transit modes that people use to get across london, most notably the Central line on the underground. so the central core section is a brand-new, purpose-built, high-frequency shuttle between important interchanges. the branches to the outer sections then serve commuter towns that are either busy or going to be busy (thus needing transit links), as well as the Canary Wharf financial centre and the country's busiest airport.

tldr. crossrail is more of an RER-like service, unlike the thameslink commuter-rail service. they're similar but, different enough for it to matter.

>the central core section is a brand-new, purpose-built, high-frequency shuttle between important interchanges
well, ok, 'shuttle' isn't completely accurate, it's not like there will be a train going back and forth calling at stations inside the core section. however, the crossrail service is going to be frequent enough in the core that it would seem like there is.

You should probably replace most of the screws immediately with better quality ones. A lot of people complain about the screws being so soft that the strip themselves pretty fast from the vibrations and movement, especially the brake caliper screws. Turn of regenerative braking too since people have been frying controllers often on the 9+s and 10+s with it on.

The worst of both worlds. Congrats!

In our densest cities, we could just put in an entire bus lane. But in Sunbelt cities we could add these with basically no disruption to traffic because the streets have so many lanes. It would increase ridership and reduce travel times.

There was a nice wide MUP with dedicated bicycle and pedestrian lanes. Why build bike infrastructure if cyclists insist on using the main road?

What happened? What is stopping us from having a country-wide transportation system like pic related?

How do we make the roads safer for lightweight PEVs, velos and ebikes?

I was thinking instead of those pesky traffic cameras we could install motion activated speed bumps. Just a series of blocks that normally sit flush with the road but raise up whenever someone does more than 5 or 8mph over the speed limit.

Since most car trips are 11 miles or less it doesnt make sense to use a 4,000 pound vehicle to move a single human from A to B and back.

What do you guys think?

because those literally aren't legal on public roads*, and quite rightly as well. while we're here the purpose of an electric assist bike is to give you a push if you're too old or fat, not to effectively be an unregistered motorbike as you amerisharts seem to think.

*except rental e scooters in some parts of bongistan, but you need a category AM moped licence.
