* Guided Rapid Transit (GRT, probably BRT) along 3 new lines:
1. Along Bellaire (their busiest bus route) from Highway 6 all the way to what looks like the east end of the eastside BRT in the Ship Channel area
2. Along what looks like the 288 median from Brazoria into downtown. Not sure how that jives with the toll road plan down the middle (which is also on the map). The plans I saw way back said any rail that direction would be in the Almeda corridor, but that's not what this map shows.
3. West along I10 from downtown to Katy. Again, not sure about where the RoW is coming from here. They also still show the managed lanes along this corridor, so it's not coming out of them.
Of most interest to me is the I-10 proposal, which would finally bring a rail line near my house. If such a line existed today, I'd have the option of not driving to work. It would take longer than driving, but not as much as you might think. I can't predict what my schedule and transportation needs might be by the time this thing gets built, assuming it does, but I'd sure love to have the choice. I'll be rooting for it to happen.Posted by Charles Kuffner on May 08, 2007 to Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
