It just makes sense to have a driver/operator on the Board because who knows Austin and area streets and transit customers better. There are a number of operators who are military veterans with backgrounds in strategic, tactical planning.

Spend the money. Pure and simple this is a safety issue.
Double Track the Red Line to allow more frequent trains and possibly more hours of operation.
Why are buses allowed to leave earlier from stops than when they're supposed to depart? This doesn't make any sense. Twice now i have missed the 3 bus because it was 5 minutes early. In the afternoon the 3 is supposed to leave Manchaca/Stasseny at 4:25 but twice I've missed it because it's came at 4:20 or 4:21. Why? Please fix this. Passengers should know that when they get to their stop on time that they haven't missed their bus.
Over the last five years, this lot has been increasing in popularity. With the addition of the 801 line, it has become nearly impossible to get a parking spot, even when arriving as early as 8:15am. Please expand this lot into the field directly north of the current parking spaces.
Before August 2014 route 3's frequency was good after the August 2014 service changes it went to crap. This was due to "complementary" service on 803. There was NO NEED to decrease the frequency as the 3 and 803 DON'T fully meet up with each other. Increase the frequency on this route why should I have to wait longer due to a bus that I can't use (I catch the 3 on Manchaca 803 doesn't run on Manchaca). Frequency on 311 also sucks and it needs to be increased.
Operate all flyer routes all day to increase faster service like rapid routes. People want more options to choose from.
