In speaking with Oscar Diaz today about the latest TransMilenio ridership
results in Bogota, he mentioned that they are now carrying on onto something
on the order of 600k people a day on 38 kms of busway. Hmm.
Now suppose they had instead decided two years back to build a metro. Where
would they be today? How much would they have spent? How many passengers
would they have already transported? What positive impact on the env would
that choice have had on the city.
Which brings up a suggested little project for anyone who has the wit, time
and desire to give this a whack. Namely, the construction of a "time line"
and a series of order of magnitude benchmarks which would compare say their
TransMilenio project with a recently completed metro in a Third World city.
Year by year comparisons of what happens and what impacts are achieved. And
$ by $. This could be very trenchant and useful indeed.
For more on the TM side, you can contact Oscar at diazoe@... or
I am sure that we would all be very eager to see how this works out. And
With all good wishes,

- Dear Friends,
Greetings from Almaty, Kazakhstan! Although I'm
currently engaged in work outside the realm of
transportation, someone may wish to undertake a study
of the metro here at some time in the future. The
construction of the (as-yet inoperative) metro here
was begun before the collapse of the Soviet Union and
was frozen due to lack of funding. It seems that
there is a renewed interest in completing the project,
and hopefully the project will be completed in the
not-so-distant future. In the meantime, the air
quality in the city leaves much to be desired as the
number of private vehicles skyrockets. Fortunately,
the nearby Tian-Shan mountains have plenty of fresh
air and provide a much-needed refuge for the city
Best wishes to all,
