  1. I watched the Capital Planning Committee Meeting. It does not appear METRO would cut any stations at the moment. The presentation focused on how METRO could use Bcycle as an outlet for first/last mile connections with their riders. Now it could change, but I believe this a great thing for Bcycle. They obviously need help (the current 70 station shutdown must be addressed), and METRO can give them the necessary help.
  2. TIRZ-15-Mobility-Plan-17-June-2022_Final-Approved-Adopted_compressed.pdf (eadohouston.com) Page 47 of the plan talks about it.
  3. I get what you're saying, but route 754 in Los Angeles is not BRT. It does not have dedicated lanes and its running in mixed traffic throughout one of LA's most congested corridors: Vermont Ave. It is more like Houston METRO's route 402 Quickline service. If you want to compare Silver Line to other BRT routes, try the G Line in Los Angeles, which is 100% dedicated bus lanes, like the Silver Line.
  4. My bad, you know what I meant tho. Whatever the current schedule is already way too conservative with timing.
  5. So METRO has yet to actually get the TSP up and running on the Silver Line. It is installed, but there has been some software glitches along the way and they're trying to work out the kinks. Hopefully TSP will come into play soon. Also, METRO has severely padded the Silver Line's schedule. They need to make it way more aggressive, buses can prob traverse the corridor between 25-35 min...not the 45ish minutes they have currently in the schedule. If you are a rider of the Silver Line, I would suggest filling out a public comment asking about status of TSP so METRO understands it is an important component for the rider's experience and try to get it online sooner rather than later.
  6. That is unfortunate, every time I go there, it is pretty busy. It is a great neighborhood spot :(. Thanks for the update @IntheKnowHouston
  7. I wonder if they're just turning into a CAVA like they've done with 90% of their other locations. Seems like the only one left is the one on San Felipe.
  8. Wait, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, this station is actually temporarily closed (in addition to probably like 75% of the B Cycle stations due to cost saving measures). Here is a full list of all of the suspended stations: BCycle Station Suspension list (PUBLIC) (squarespace.com)
  9. I think you're right. The signal upgrades might be for bike detection and bike signals at this intersection.
  10. A relative said they saw on the West U neighborhood group that the building is having some serious foundation issues? Coming from a neighborhood online forum, everything must be taken with a grain of salt ., but still thought I would post it. Has anyone heard anything about this?
  11. Yes, all the roads and sidewalks along the BRT corridor will be rebuilt.
  12. Heard from a friend who has info, said they had to pause due to a delay with the glass arriving. Typical supply chain issues.
  13. METRO will be replacing the existing transit center and building a new garage facility near the existing property with a variety of enhancements including new bus bays. Style will be similar to Lower Uptown TC. https://www.ridemetro.org/Pages/TC-Northline.aspx
  14. you can submit a parking violation via 311 and parking enforcement will be sent out.
