Mass Public Transportation System
The traffic every day is become worse. Even when the gasoline's prices have been increasing every year and thegovernment has worked hard to created new routes, still I don't see fewer cars on my commute. Let me explain something to you, I am talking about Houston, where everything is far away for anythingelse. Take at least an hour goes from one place to another (without traffic).

Also, the local government should ask the people not to use their cars at least once a week; instead of, they can use the public transportation.
The system of lanes should be located inI-10, 59, 610, and 45.

It wouldn't bejust about going faster to everywhere, also have to be about make the passengers feel as comfortable as in their own car too.
The idea behind all of thesechanges is that until we are using the actual public transportation with some improvements, the government should design the new and final Mass Public Transportation System "The Houston above ground...
