Mark Aesch Moves To Consolidate Upstate Transit Authorities

Sunday, November 14th, 2010

Aesch wants to consolidate the big four upstate transit authorities. He points to the Rochester transit system which, over the past 5 years, has addressed I just read an article in Sunday’s Albany Times Union that has me scratching my head. Mark Aesch, CEO of the Rochester Genesee Regional Transportation Authority, wants to consolidateexternal link the four big transit authorities of upstate New York—Albany, Syracuse, Rochester, and Buffalo. On the surface it seems to make sense. They each do the same thing in relatively similar cities in a single state. But does Aesch really believe consolidating operations across a 250 mile wide region will lead to better public transit service for all four regions? Or are we witnessing the beginning of a power grab?

Hot New License Plate Design or Hot Pile of #@&!?

Monday, November 16th, 2009

The newly proposed NY license plate design. Gold with a blue swoosh? Are you kidding me with this?

If you’re a New York motorist you’ve probably heard about Albany’s latest attempt to use your wallet to fix their budget gap. Beginning in May 2010 you may be required to buy a new set of plates external link for your ride (starting at $25). I say “may” because this is not a done-deal and lawmakers just might buckle under the pressure from protesters and decide against the whole idea. But if Patterson has his way, your car may soon be adorned with lovely new blue and gold plates… GAG!

Perhaps being a graphic designer disqualifies me from passing judgement, but based solely on the proposed design, I say this is a bad idea. But let’s take an informal poll…

Leave a comment and let us know what do you think.

Rewind: High Speed Rail Art from 2002

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

Fast forward or rewind? The dream of high speed rail in Upstate NY is nothing new. Back in 1993 external link Mario Cuomo wanted to see Amtrak service upgraded to 125mph between Albany and Buffalo. And the idea has been studied up and down since the 70’s. But now with Obama and Biden calling for a new high speed rail network to ease congestion on U.S. roadways, and Representative Louise Slaughter spearheading a new push to bring high speed upstate external link, what’s old just may be new again. Check out this poster…

'Fast Forward - High Speed Rail for Rochester' poster designed by Laura Wilder circa 2002. Commissioned by the Genesee Transportation Council to drum up support for high speed rail.
