    Bonjour from France

    Hi, I'm actually from Seattle. Just in France for the year.

    I found this site while looking for information on Seattle's defunct monorail on google. Not sure how this site popped up. Anyway, I'm an accounting student who had a creepy obsession with cities and urban transport since 2nd grade.

    I have a "thing" for mass transit systems right now. Interested in ridership patterns; figures and frequencies; and stigmas attached to low-ridership systems (or differences between good and 'bad' systems).

    Anyway just wanted to say hi!

    Welcome from SW Michigan! If you haven't already, be sure to check out the 'transportation planning' forum.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Welcome from Pittsburgh!

    The transportation planning obsession becomes less creepy if you find someone to pay you to do it every day. That's what I tell myself, anyway.

    Hello, from Irving, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
