Design for new downtown MetroRail station unveiled by doggod in Austin

[–]ciscotree 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Maybe it would greatly benefit you and those who live downtown (there is already a bus to the airport with poor ridership) but I live in Austin and I'm not taking a 40 minute bus ride downtown to wait 30 minutes for a train, then another 30 minutes to get to the airpory. with luggage.

A business traveler has a car, rents a car, or uses taxis/riseshares.

It's definitely needed down Riverside. Let's do that and add an Airport connector in the future.

It's going to cost a lot of money to get to the airport. There is zero existing track. They are working on 183 South and 71 already and just finished 71 Toll. They have to work it in there somehow.

Yeah it's true but should we build a rail line for those few days? Why not have extra bus service to the airport?

Don't get me wrong, I'd love service to the airport but I don't think we should start there. Let's built it for Austin Residents instead of visitors. Austin is expensive already. A 20 dollar ride from the airport won't break anyone's budget.

I don't think it should be a priority. I think most people visiting Austin need a car. Let's get local train service first.

They need to put guard rail on both sides of the bike path. If not, you'll get people walking in to the bike path--just like those two people in the picture are about to do.

You can also take them directly to Austin Resource Recovery along with all the other bigger recycling items you might have. They accept a lot.

My favorite is the "Let me get all the free stuff" person who holds up the line to go find them in the store during checkout. I'm not sure who I hate more for that, the customer or the employee.

Dude, how many 99 cent shitty flashlights do you need?

Statesman Op-Ed on the history and importance of Guerro Park by paprikasuave in Austin

[–]ciscotree 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Really? I literally drive all over Texas. I find the roads to be pretty generally pretty damn clean--especially in the country.

By your logic, we shouldn't do anything about anything, right? I mean, where do we draw the line?

No one really but I think the Texas Supreme Court is supposed to make a ruling on this.

During the bans, there was a considerable drop in littering. It's a question again of what's is more important: my rights or the bigger picture.

I see your point but tubing will always lead to a trashy river. I'm glad they shut that down.

Couple keeps getting toll bills for car they no longer own by NotGoodAtHiding in Austin

[–]ciscotree 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I sold a car and wasn't expecting to sell it on the first viewing and forgot about the TxTag. I did the VTR-346 and removed the car from my TxTag account. I got a bill a few months later for a few toll charges. Contested it (while showing them proof of submitting the VTR-346) and they removed the charges after one call.

Please Texas, can we kick Cruz to the curb? by justfiddling in Austin

I don't think I've heard many of today's politicians listen to what the constituents said and then change their position.

He went back on that almost immediately and apologized.

I dunno. Those heart shaped taco platters are pretty romantic.

That's a lot of work! Thanks. I noticed a change on Southwest parkway but it's been corrected already.

If I notice a timing changing and open a 311 ticket, will you guys actually do anything about it?

Judging by the OP username and those stupid emojis, I'm assuming this is just a troll.

Home warranty policy with reputable contractors in Austin by spamftw in Austin

[–]ciscotree 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That would be great. Just know that warranty companies are in it to make money. Don't be surprised if they deny you for "pre-existing conditions". Yes, that's real.

If you know your water heater is going to fail, then replace it. Are you looking at getting warranty for a month so they can replace it for you? If so, good luck.

One picture showing Spectrum's 300mb service taken at 12pm 9.2.18 :( by TheDarkLordChuckles in Austin

[–]ciscotree 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The likely scenario is that Spectrum's speed test server is on the Spectrum network--so it's fast (think of this like your local network). When testing with third party speed tests, it has to go through Spectrum, outside of their network to the internet, and to the test server.

What's your point? I'm not Asian but I shop at Asian supermarkets.
