In Topic: The T's new Master Plan

You can use "The Parking Spot" and do uncovered self park for $5.25 a day with a shuttle ride into the airport.  I've never tried it but if you're on a budget or taking an extended trip and don't want to pay $10/day it's another option.

TRE link will now connect with TEXRail at Terminal B.

In other words we could have done this years ago and not have spent money on a TEXrail line that is extremely underused... or used at all.  LOL

 

Hopefully,  TEXrail will add ridership as time passes.

 

 

Would have certainly cost less than $1B too!  Could they not have figured out a way to run a people mover from CenterPort to the Terminals and stop by the rental car lot on the way to and from?  Get rid of the buses altogether.  Not like there isn't plenty of land through there, most of which is owned by the airport.

Yes we are.  We are calling it the Primary Bedroom or Owner's Suite.

 

Wow, "Owner?"  I wasn't really expecting that one.  Seems like the complete opposite direction.

I totally forgot they were dumping passengers off at the rental car lot.  What a shame all these years having the TRE that close to the airport with such a confusing connection process.  During the pandemic, I drove by the south remote lot and I'm not even sure it was operating during that time. 

 

That reminds me, I had to drop something off at the airport post office on Monday over on Rental Car Rd across from the What-a-Burger, and I saw a well-dressed business traveler wandering what seemed to be aimlessly through the parking lots with suitcase in-hand.  Not sure if someone had dropped them off at that gas station thinking there was a terminal connection bus or if they were trying to get to the rental car lot perhaps.  I've been in that situation in Germany where you take public transportation 98% of the way and can see your destination which looks like you're almost there, but really "almost there" is actually about a 3-mile walk once you get into it.

The building has a website, though not much info is available yet.

I noticed their floorplans use verbs to describe each room.live/dine, dream, study, refresh, cook, relax. I guess you can call it anything that makes sense but this seems fresh and positive.

From what I understand, many realtors are moving away from using the term *master* to describe the primary bed/bath elements in a layout.
