Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves

2013 in review

with 2 comments

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

Madison Square Garden can seat 20,000 people for a concert. This blog was viewed about 67,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Madison Square Garden, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Click here to see the complete report.

Thank you to my readers and those who take the time to comment. While I expect to continue to blog here and on my other blog (which is not about transport or planning and gets many fewer visitors) I do not try to write frequently. I will only post here when I think I have something worth saying, and I am trying to reduce the amount of repetition as I have no wish to bore anyone. There will probably be more on twitter or Facebook.

Please accept my best wishes for 2014. For myself I am keenly looking forward to a month in Italy in the spring.

  1. No need to fear repetition Stephen – you always have something informative and interesting to say for we, the non-transportation gear heads who stop by for a read.

    And, on a personal note, I am most happy to be the runner-up in the referral department, especially given the fact that I’m a step above Mark Zuckerberg on the transfer station podium.

    Happy New Year!

  2. Stephen,
    Best wishes for an interesting new year! many heartfelt thanks for a great blog….

    Will you check Milan transit system? It is bigger than Rome (both for metros and commuter trains) as Milan is the business capital of Italy. Their 3 tiers fare system is quite interesting….

    Transit in Venice is equally interesting, in a different way altogether…if you go there, do try to walk by the main hospital and have a look at paramedics moving a patient on stretcher from a water ambulance to the quay without dropping him/her in the canal..
