Hell, I'll ask it, any glimmer of hope Metro will move up dates for the University and Uptown Lines? Still a little baffled as to why they are making two lines to the Southeast simultaneously. If anything, the biggest payoff would be the Northwest and potentially relieve 290 of SOME traffic and may get an expansion; I mean it is the new Katy Freeway
. I've been going to school in bodunk Lubbock for three years now and when I went home over winter break... sweet jesus driving around town had never been so frustrating and stressful. I know we gained over a million people, but damn what the hell happened the past three years?!
I was actually just reading on the website last night (mind you it was a study break and i may have been deliriously tired as i still am now.. gotta love finals!) and looking at the progress of the three lines being constructed I dont quite understand why wait for those to be completed before starting on the University and Uptown Lines. Those lines will have the highest amount of ridership and tourist destinations which would serve as the window to visitors what Houston is really like. So tired of some of my friends from elsewhere in Texas saying Houston sucks, I immediately ask if they got off the freeway, and usually the answer is no.
