Mechanical collection saves the city money because it heads off damage to vulnerable sewer sections.
If there wasn’t mechanical collection they’d still need to bring trucks in to haul away thousands of leaf bags.
Suspect a major reason why the whole city isn’t collected is that the cost...
Can’t see how that would fly, so to speak. That would make a delivery/pickup fee mandatory for all terminating passengers, and they already collect such mandatory fees on the ticket.
There’s also far too many passengers to serve solely through public transit/hires.
That said, there is...
Yeah - that’s supposed to be the multi-level walkway from the check-in hall across the street. Since all of T1 and T3 would be airside it should make things much more open and inviting.
Not thrilled about the proposed 15-20 minute walk from cab to gate though...
While the original T1 plan had it eventually expanding to replace T3, the newer transit hub models show both terminals. Suspect at this point they’d add a third finger pier on T1 before tearing down T3
