  1. It is not just parking decks that will not be needed. Every level of government should be drastically reducing or eliminating minimum parking requirements asap.

  2. Is the reduced parking from autonomous cars because gas+driving in circles will be cheaper than paying for parking? No need for pee breaks if your Johnny Cab just occupies free road space while you go shopping.

  3. The Twin Cities BRT line is expected to be operational in 2024. Why the heck does it take 7 years to set up BRT? I get that they want to use a dedicated bus lane, but the main strength of BRT is that you can set it up in virtually no time. The dedicated lane can come later, but the bus line could start by next year.
