The Cancer Center has furniture going in. So close you can taste it. And a fly-by picture of the Chihuly structure.

Re: Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium

Just voted.

I'm going on the 17th for the first time in maybe 10 years (whenever the Hubbard was under construction). The place will seem about 50% new to me, so I better pace myself walking around.

Re: Avenue One (192nd & Dodge)

I can't even use the bus because the bus paths basically just exist to take people downtown. Yeah, another big problem with Omaha is that most transport in this city is designed to serve downtown.

Re: Blackstone Business Improvement District

Increase ridership -> increase # of buses. This equation works both ways: increase # of buses (i.e. stops per hour) -> increase ridership.

Re: Blackstone Business Improvement District

If there were a streetcar from UNO to downtown, it would get used. The streetcars have to be on 15 minute intervals, except after 10pm where it goes to 30 minutes. The reason why the OMetro doesn't get used as much is partly because of the stigma of riding the bus. If the City of Omaha were to dump ...
