  1. Train From Houston To Galveston?

    Union Pacific doesn't like commuter trains running on their freight lines. For commuter rail service to Galveston, you would probably have to build a new set of tracks parallel to the existing tracks, and build a new causeway bridge. You're looking at billions of dollars. It's worth noting that Galveston doesn't have a dedicated source of funding for transit, and is struggling to run three buses a day to Bay Area park and ride. There isn't even good bus service between the cities. Until recently, there was no bus service between the cities. It's unfortunate, because I think commuter rail between Houston and Galveston would be great. Not only would you be able to travel between the cities, those who live between the cities can travel to either city.
  2. Houston Aerials

    That's great! I really enjoyed it.
  3. KPRC Channel 2 Houston Expansion

    Update: KHOU is broadcasting from WFAA's newsroom at the moment. They were at KUHT (PBS) a few minutes ago, but they just had an outage.
  4. KPRC Channel 2 Houston Expansion

    Where are KHOU and KPRC broadcasting from? KHOU is broadcasting with WFAA's logo, but I don't recognize the set.
  5. Apparently, when you create an account, it's only good for one city. If you want to purchase a membership in a different city, you have to create a new account with a different email address (though there's a little work-around to that). My previous 24-hour Fort Worth memberships have long since expired, so the above link doesn't apply to me. ------------------------------ Anyway, I rode B-Cycles around Buffalo Bayou Park this morning. It's a very nice park! I'll be sure to try it again this December when it's much cooler outside.
  6. I'm trying to purchase a one-month Houston membership online, but can't seem to do so. When I try to log into Houston's system, it tells me to log into Fort Worth's system instead (where I purchased a previous membership). The problem is, I can't purchase a Houston membership there. When I try to create a new account on Houston's site, it won't let me because I already have a B-cycle account. What gives?
  7. XTO Moving to Houston

    Congrats on getting XTO, Houston. This is a big loss for us in Fort Worth. http://www.star-telegram.com/news/business/article156670054.html
  8. Looks great! Hopefully, I'll be there later this summer.
  9. Super Bowl LI

    I'll be on the lookout for live Super Bowl coverage from Discovery Green on my TV.
  10. Mid Main — Mixed-Use Development for Midtown (3600 Main)

    Well, at least we can't see those hallways from outside of the building.
  11. Wait a minute- what is all of that green stuff on the lawn to the right? Is that grass?! What happened to all of the brown dirt that used to be there? On a more serious note, the convention center area is starting to look really good.
  12. 2016 COH HEB Thanksgiving parade

    Since I'm here in Houston for the holiday weekend, I decided to attend the Thanksgiving parade yesterday. Here's one of the few parade pictures I took:
  13. Last time I went to Discovery Green (several months ago), there was hardly anyone there. The time I visited before that, Discovery Green was full of people and seemed much more interesting.
  14. GreenStreet Redevelopment + 21-Story Hotel Alessandra

    Apparently, someone really wanted a new window. In more seriousness, does anyone else notice the lighter concrete square immediately around the hole? It looks like there may have been a previous repair in that exact same spot. EDIT: I can't find the lighter square box in the picture before the hole appeared, so maybe not.
  15. Dallas - Houston HSR Station

    Both NW transit center and NW mall are bad locations for people arriving in Houston if their destination is downtown. Downtown Houston has the highest concentration of office buildings and hotels that you could walk to after getting off the train.
