Houston had an opportunity to promote and have a monorail from downtown to airports and Galleria. They chose a High Occupancy Vehicle Lanes that provide tolls. It would have been best and less expensive for a monorail. Traffic is a nightmare and more people rekocating here from California/West Coast and New York.

Driving in Houston is a complete nightmare. The roads are horrible with countless bumps and potholes that the city doesn't care to fix. People often drive as if there are no traffic laws so accidents and drunk driving are a big problem. The public transportation in Houston is a complete joke. The buses aren't reliable and often have homeless and gang members riding them. And the train only serves a small part of downtown.
