The Orlandofication continues. I'm glad I don't have to drive around that part of town at rush hour.

I hope JTA has some plans to address the transportation needs of the thousands of people moving to this area. It seems like a BRT along Gate Parkway alone could serve thousands. I wonder how many people that live in the new apartments on that road work at FL Blue, Merrill Lynch, The Town Center, St. Vincent's, etc.

Likely a lot more than downtown and a lot more are on the way.

Woah, there! Sensible, thought-out, cost effective and scalable urban public transit? Not in my Jacksonville!

I'm happy to see all of these apartment complexes going up!
