These lines could lead to more rail. KHOU-TV Metro has two routes which may lead to more rail. There’s plenty of excitement over the two most talked about routs, but neither of those will get you to the big airport. “Those buses should be full you know, but most of the time they’re empty,” said Mario Umanzor, Poppa Burgers. Umanzor’s burger shop on North Main could soon have an up-close view of a bus-rapid-transit line, a key part of Metro’s North Corridor expansion plan. He wonders whether it’s even needed. “See? See that? See what I’m talking about? The bus is empty. What do we need that for?” he said. The line would extend downtown’s light rail to just north of I-10, then link up with a new rapid-transit bus route, which would run up North Main and Burnett, ending at the Northline Mall on Fulton. One plan has the bus line running down the center of Fulton. Some neighborhood groups complain it would force the removal of historic trees. The other plan would divert the line along Irvington, then run west on Cavalcade to meet Fulton. Roosevelt Elementary sits near the north end of both routes.
