Far be it from me to defend Jeff Outhit, but the article that I saw is actually by Jeff Hicks, and I think it’s reasonably fair other than the incorrect reporting that construction delays are partly responsible for the late opening. Is there also an Outhit article? (an Outhicle?)

Has anyone else noticed the odd placement of some of the platform bike racks? I notice that there is one at UW that appears to be very close to the service road and crossing signals (and also in a prime pedestrian pathway).

The Record has posted their article about the delay on Facebook three times so far. Impressive.

You'd almost think they're biased.

Yes, that was identified when the amenities started showing up back in July.

Here is a more recent photo of the Willis stop's bike racks. Longer bikes will hang over the pedestrian access way a touch here too, but not like at UW.
   
   

It's like making a 100 spot vehicle parking lot and installing bollards in the middle of 20 of the spots.
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.

Something I've only just spotted, going over some photos: at Allen station, the big sign on the tile wall just says 'Allen', but the platform-level signs read 'Allen Street'...

Which? If it's the directional/wayfinding signs, that makes sense - since they're directing you to the "thing". If it's the actual station name flags that are on every light post... that's a huge mistake!
