  2. HAIF transit enthusiasts, I bring to you this morning the most awesome thing ever! I give you the TRAVIC - Transit Visualization Client! http://tracker.geops.ch/ You can pretty much go to most cities and countries and just watch the movement of transit in a very slick visualization format. If it sees very slow thats because its actually working on realtime. The best way to really visualize it though is to speed it up x15 or x30. What is jarring is when you compare a city like New York, London, Paris, etc.... with transit in Houston and just how different and quite frankly dead it is. Whats even cooler is that its not just a fancy visual. You can click on any of the moving dots and it will show you the stops on the line itself and where it is heading.
  3. This came in the e-mail this morning. -------------------- METRO RIDERSHIP CONTINUES TO RISE AGENCY POSTS SIXTH STRAIGHT MONTH OF GROWTH More people are riding METRO buses and rail more often. METRO ridership is on the rise for a sixth consecutive month, recording a 5.2 percent increase to 6,357,131 boardings in January 2012 compared to 6,043,280 in January 2011. “Thanks to our focus on smart service and service changes to improve the system, we have been able to take advantage of the improving economy to deliver first-class transit to our community,” said METRO President & CEO George Greanias. Upward METRO Ridership Trend Continues for Sixth Consecutive Month Local bus and Park & Ride - January, 2011: 5,277,229 Local bus and Park & Ride - January, 2012: 5,455,106 MetroRAIL - January, 2011: 766,051 MetroRAIL - January, 2012: 902,025 METRORail ridership posted a 17.7 percent increase to 902,025 boardings compared to the 766,051 recorded in the same month last year. Park & Ride and local bus service jumped to 5,455,106 boardings versus 5,277,229 in January 2011. The continued growth is due in large part to increased employment in the area and METRO’s ongoing system adjustments to improve efficiency. Though there is currently no link between the agency’s growth in ridership and rising gas prices, METRO offers many alternatives to move about the city, and welcomes new riders and returning patrons. The latest transit savings report from the American Public Transportation Association shows that riding public transit saves about $9,914 a year. About METRO The Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (METRO) is the region’s largest public transit provider, offering safe, reliable and affordable transportation services about 370,000 times per day. Besides operating more than 1,200 buses, METRO is currently expanding its 7.5-mile light-rail line (Red Line), with three new lines under construction. METRO’s services also include:Star Vanpool, METROLift, HOV lanes, HOT lanes, Bikes-on-Buses/Trains program, Park & Ride and road improvement projects.
