Happy Birthday dear friend. We've known each other an awfully long time now. I like that.

John Krause

Happy Birthday, Jarrett!


Congratulations Jarrett! On both your b-day and your house.

Now get crackin' on paying off that mortgage before you retire. I speak from experience!




Happy birthday... besides it seems like a good time to buy a house in the USA...

Alon Levy

Happy birthday!

I'm looking forward to hearing you on Tel Aviv. The city has so many interesting issues to work on - the way it's building a subway, the dysfunctional bus network, the prevalence of high-rise sprawl - and I'm sure you'll have plenty of insights.

Okay, so now that you've settled down in Portland, how can we get you in charge of things at Trimet? Interested in running for a position on the Metro Board? ;-)


Another reader for your Tel-Aviv insights. When are you coming to fix our transit?

Happy birthday!

Daniel Howard

Happy Birthday and Congratulations!!

david vartanoff

welcome to the landed gentry and happy birthday.

Peter Parker

Happy birthday Jarrett and congratuations on the house. Definitely a different feeling than renting. You can now build walls of books or whatever takes your fancy without worrying about the landlord. And I trust that it's near one or more 'frequent network' routes!

Congrats! Surprise, so that's where urban transport planners would like to live.

Happy B-Day, enjoy it and have fun

Robert Willis

Do something nice for yourself today!

I did!  Rode a really useful bus!  ;)

David Duval

Bonne fête Jarret !


Jarrett, did you use Walk Score or Transit Score to determine your new house?

With that said, congratulations and best wishes for both of your milestones.

Jarrett at HumanTransit.org

Wad.  In my case I know Portland well enough that I didn't need those tools.  As it turns out, Walkscore is 58.  Low Walkscore reflects WS's emphasis on proximity rather than quality of walk environment.  Shops are over a half mile away, but I'd much rather walk 1/2 mile to them in Portland's fine-grained and pleasant urban grid than do a much shorter walk in the anti-pedestrian suburbs.  TransitScore is 50, ludicrously low for an area with very good transit access by Portland standards.  Jarrett
