  1. The next bill will the massive infrastructure and next generation stuff. Congress will spend a total of 100-200b on public transit/trains/commuter. She needs to holdout for atleast a billion for metro in all together at minimum. I don't know why metro and others aren't lobbying her more. I spoke with her chief of staff they told me she's aware of metro rail expansion and is working with metro. Let's see honestly but with her vote meaning so much ( 5 seat majority in the house) she needs to demand for lots of $$$$. I've donated a decent amount to her in her campaign and she needs to be aware of the situation. Now that earmarks are back in congress let's get some damn money flowing and rebuild our public transit for truly next generation. Congress is never going to ever pass this sort of funding again in our lifetime and she needs to leverage her vote for some truly historic investments. (Not talking politics keeping it strictly bout infrastructure) We need to hold our elected officials accountable bottom line. I urge everyone here to contact her office and demand that she brings us more than bus lines. Grassroots and pressure works. I've had numerous friends and others call her also.
  2. https://mobile.twitter.com/SecretaryPete/status/1415053476284047362 Every other democratic congressman are getting all their local cities massive train and public transit expansion wtf is lizzie doing ?!?! With the massive trillion dollar infrastructure bill (which this nation needed a decade ago) upcoming she should be using all her leverage to fund all metro projects. I've spoken to her office and I ask you guys to also. We really have a once in a generational opportunity to transform the public transit in Houston. We're not talking about expanded bus lines and other bs. True change and the money is there
  3. I've spoken to Rodney Cox whos in charge of operations for the entire airport. Im not sure why that rumor is spreading because United plans on making Houston the largest hub by 2023. In regards to Denver they plan on expanding to 650 by 2025 but Houston will be the king of of all hubs. Denver will take over alot of the regional routes and replace them with 737's, but Houston will get the most destinations added. IAH to Dublin, Iah to Aukland are all but guaranteed as well. United wouldn't be investing 1/3 of a billion dollars into a single airport if didnt see it as the king. Houston will be the only United airport that will have EBS (Early bag system). I'll post photos of the construction when I have time but its going to be one of a kind.
  4. At the moment we service 492 a day and we plan on increasing it to 700-800 A DAY after 2022. I dont think you guys know just how much growth United is planning for IAH.
  5. Its not just any bag but its the most expensive bag room in the USA. During the holiday season we had major issues with luggage and we were even storing luggage in the training classrooms because we literally had no where to store them. After the new bag room is built we'll be able to handle more then 75k bags a day. I'll post photos of the construction of the room. We'll have the third most sophisticated bagroom only behind DXB and ICN.
  6. Ill bet you anything the Mumbai route will be confirmed. Also IAH-MDE is another route that is being discussed.
  7. I work at United in the operation department at IAH. We've hired over 200 employees over the past 2 years and are still hiring. We've hired more in the past 1 year then we did between 2007-2017. I'll know by May additional routes if others are interested. If you want me to post photos of the new bagroom under construction or whatever else to prove myself just let me know and I'll snap some pics.
  8. United is buulding a 350 million dollar bag room and plan on adding 150 flights in 2 years. Iah to mumbai and iah to lagos is all but guaranteed.
  9. More money in light rail and less money on rapid bus.
  10. Jesus this is hideous. They couldn't have came up with any other different schemes?
  11. As someone who works for United and works outdoors, if you guys want photos of anything specifically just let me know. I'd be sure to take photos or answer any questions you may have.
  12. they were looking at a downtown location. Houston will also be getting a W in the near future.
  13. will have more details on the ritz soon. Also have exciting about a new hotel thats in the works for downtown
