Places generally along the South Freeway (I-45), and south of the Ship Channel, including Clear Lake, Deer Park, Freindswood, the Hobby Area, League City, Pasadena, Santa Fe, South Houston, and Texas City.
Metro hints at a future light rail extension along 90a, but the only substantive thing I can find on the MetroNext plan is two way HOV. Missouri City is part of Metro’s service area and voted in the bond referendum, but light rail is unlikely unless Sugarland and other Fort Bend towns are willing to chip in. This feels like a big miss to me, but I’m not sure what the projected ridership for such a line would be even with full participation from Fort Bend county.
I’m also curious If Metro could purchase their own ROW inside the existing Union Pacific ROW when the time came.
I remember an old ice house on Almeda, it was next to the riding stables on the edge of Herman Park. My recollection is from the late 50's when I was a kid and loved ice-cold Cokes pulled out of an icy cooler!
