bike/walking lanes

I live in the Canyon Lake area and would like to see bike/walking/jogging paths integrated into any new road expansion. River Road is a very good example. Everyday there are a large number of cyclists, runners and walkers enjoying River Rd. Unfortunately for those not in a motorized vehicle the narrow winding road is hazardous. Granted, the speed limit varies from 20 mph to 30 mph throughout the entire stretch of road ...more »

Improve public transit in San Antonio

What I'd like to see is for San Antonio to become a city like San Francisco or New York where it isn't necessary to own a car. We have a long way to go in terms of both transit systems and cultural attitudes before that can happen, if it ever does. Steps in that direction would include expanded bus service, streetcars, a light rail system that serves both downtown and outlying areas, and a marketing campaign to encourage ...more »

Some of us live in rural communities SPECIFICALLY to be away from these types of services. I urge the MPO to consider this and preserve the rural portions of the newly adopted counties. Please continue to make the urbanized areas as transportation friendly as possible and encourage ...more »

Connected, Regional Hike/bike trail plan

I would love to see a Regional hike/bike trail plan that would connect Austin to San Antonio. This could be have a huge positive economic impact for local communities, help to protect fragile Hill Country areas from over development and protect loss of wildlife habitat among many other benefits.

Main traffic problem relates to drivers

The MPO should seriously consider education of drivers in the Greater San Antonio Austin area. Everyone in this area gets on to any road and moves to the left most lane and drives usually about 20 miles below speed limit. "Slower Traffic Keep right" has no presence or significance in these two cities. Even government vehicles, large tractor trailers and public vehicles are culpable in this regard. The Police departments ...more »
