#Jacqueline Tashenberg on Jul 08, 2017 :
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.
