    Edmonton | Valley Line LRT/ Valley Line West | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    Your comparison isn't fair, you're including ~8 mins of walking time for the valley line but not the capital line. (Hit the details button and you'll see the actual travel time sans walking.) You might be surprised to find it's still what I said, 23 vs 27 mins. And of course you should use the...

    Edmonton | Valley Line LRT/ Valley Line West | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    Not to be that guy, but it's more like 23 vs 27 minutes. It's actually less than I thought, and the valley line leg might be slightly longer too.

    Edmonton Real Estate Market

    The flipside to all of this is rents are up ~9% y/y in Edmonton: https://rentals.ca/national-rent-report So landlords to some degree are just downloading their increased costs onto the tenants to the degree that the market allows, and we'll likely see this trend for rental prices continue...

    Edmonton International Airport (EIA/YEG)

    If only the city was a part of some sort of regional transit commission, this would probably be easier to implement. Oh wait...

    Some recent updates on the ballpark via twitter. I've driven by a few times and lots of grading works underway currently.

    Edmonton | Valley Line LRT/ Valley Line West | ?m | ?s | City of Edmonton

    That 102ave stretch by City Centre Mall is feeling pretty stale/cold to me. Part of it is the lack of street interaction and the empty corner lot where the BMO building once was, but it's also the lack of greenery and the materials they used. Would have liked to have seen soil cells for trees...

    Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) in Edmonton

    The Garrison would not be a good endpoint IMO, the existing bus service got nixed in 2019 due to low demand: https://www.stalberttoday.ca/local-news/advance-poll-and-refinery-cash-at-county-council-1667633

    Edmonton | Highway 15 Bridge Twinning | ?m | ?s

    The RVA / Sturgeon County will be connecting the underslung pedestrian bridge to the existing Lamoureux trail. I've heard it will be one of the final tasks for the project, along with the paving of Lamoureux Dr itself on the Sturgeon side.

    North Saskatchewan River Taxi

    How would a year round river taxi work with you know, the river being frozen in winter?
