Depends on what one considers urban I guess. I don't count sprawling single family housing as urban. That's suburban. Not much development has happened west of 72nd to change that in the last 30+ years. Houses are still widely spaced, and apartments still sit on large sprawling lots. The population density alone shows 72nd is still the primary divider (looking at the 2010 census).

meanwhile , no non express bus service west of 102nd street will ever happen in Omaha

westroads is not the end of the city, Omaha Metro Transit






this BRT is window dressing for a impotent bus system runned by a guy named Curt who needs to go find another line of work

he has for many years ran Omaha Metro transit into the ground

as long as Curt Simon and the other idiots at Metro are running things, nothing good will happen.


we need new ideas, not the establishment mentality. Establishment and elitist mentality is killing America.


OPS purged of the corrupt old guard of board members in 2010, 2012 and 2013,

it way over time for a overhaul at Metro Area Transit

the fact Stothert and the City Council don't ride buses or will ever ride a BRT shows they will mess this up in someway.


Make the Mayor

and Festersen and the 6 underlings of Pete 's on the council take the bus service for a month, than make some changes for the good.

I thought at least one did, at least some times. I recall someone here running into a council member while on the bus. Just wish I could recall who it was.

Ideally, yes they should take public transport.

How so? I would say the opposite - ideally, nobody would take the bus. Public transportation is is slower, difficult to navigate, reduces your freedom, exposes you to bad weather, is inconvenient, clogs up traffic lanes, and is a drain on taxpayers.

The real drain on tax payers is maintaining roads from here to the Elkhorn River.
