Petition to Houston Metro requesting More Service from Hillcroft TC and Westheimer

This petition made change with 211 supporters!

This petition is to let Metro know about the inconveniences faced due to the recent route changes while commuting between Hillcroft area and Downtown

The recent route change doesn't offer sufficient service from Hillcroft area to cater to the large crowd who commute to Downtown on a daily basis. Unfortunately new changes are bringing more cars to down town. We request Metro to understand the inconveniences many of us face and consider the suggested changes for quick implementation.

Current Issues:
1. Route #151 - Morning Service
No services after 8.30 AM from Hillcroft TC. People commute to downtown till 10.30 AM
2. Route #151 - Peak Hour Rush
Buses reach Hillcroft TC with 80 % full in Peak hours.
People are made to wait for next bus which again has only limited space for standing.
3. Route #151 - Bus Capacity
New Bus capacity is limited and doesn't handle peak hour rush.
Standing space is very limited and inconvenient.
4. Route # 47 - No connectivity to Hillcroft TC for people going to Downtown.
Many people using route #47 to reach Downtown. They now walk 15 mins to reach Hillcroft TC
5. No proper connectivity from Westheimer Road to Downtown.
Westheimer Road has many people who work near Smith St and Louisiana St and they now have to walk long way while using route # 82

Suggested Changes:
1. Route # 151 - Frequency of Service:
1A) Day Time Service:
 Service every 20 mins from 9 AM to 10.30 AM
Service every 30 mins for daytime (10:30 AM to 3.00 PM)

1B) Peak Hour Service :
Service every 10 mins during Peak hours (7.30 AM to 9 AM & 4.30 PM to 6 PM)

2.Route # 151 - Bus Capacity:

2A) Replace the limited capacity buses (buses with push back seats) with regular & trailer buses as before.
2B) Add Additional 151 buses starting from Hilcroft TC during morning peak hours (7.30 AM to 8.30 AM)

 We Sincerely request Metro authorities to consider this petition and do the needful to address this.
