Change 201 and 238 into a 301 connecting bluff spings to south park along slaughter and into westgate
Need service along dessau and Howard and 10 could serve this area and connect to techridge
Increase service on route 1 to at least 20 minute head ways all day to meet demand.
Please modify bus Stop ID - 905, Stop Name - 3300 MARTIN LUTHER KING & TILLERY so people in wheelchairs can more easily get on and off the bus at this stop. At this time, people in wheelchairs have a difficult time accessing the bus at this stop, because of the curb. Please rectify the long standing situation.
Add bus service for seniors living in Wildflower Terrace and Franklin Gardens to better access the HEB in Mueller.
A piece of land next to the metroline at Burnet and Anderson just came available. It would be the perfect location for a metro stop there to tie in the Wooten/North Shoal Creek neighborhoods as well as the businesses along Anderson and Northcross. http://austin.craigslist.org/off/4866253421.html
Since rail prop 1 failed in November you should consider making a metrorapid route that is similar to the urban rail. This would be a less expensive option and it is still a way to provide rapid transit. This would also help with traffic on I-35, in downtown and the UT campus.
This hasn't been successful in the past, but now (especially with the failure of the urban rail vote, which would have connected several downtown destinations) perhaps it's time again. With the planned significant expansion for metrorail, as well as the new downtown bus only lanes, a circulator might see more success. For instance, a loop from the planned downtown gateway station, up trinity, across on tenth, down Guadalupe, and then back east on 5th. Especially if bus only or bus only during rush hour lanes would be added to those segments currently lacking them.
I've heard about transportation systems in Europe where more people use public transportation than personal vehicles because of how the transportation system is set up. Capital metro should consider having a similar structure that would both increase ridership and cut down on Austin's traffic. First of all you should increase frequencies on routes 1 and 3 and on 801 and 803(on weekends have MetroRapid operate every 15 minutes instead of every 20 to 30 minutes). Consider running flyers and Express buses on weekends. Run Metrorail seven days a week(all day). Install more transit priority lines on MetroRapid lines. Put an express bus to Buda/Kyle so they can have service why are they being dis-serviced? Consider installing light rail lines on major corridors to help transport people quicker through the city. Consider making more flyer, MetroExpress and more MetroRapid lines. You should also consider serving Leander on the weekends. If possible you should consider subway and/or monorail lines for rapid transit. Becoming a mass transit system could really help with our traffic problem and could boost ridership for Capital Metro tremendously.
