I live at the Greenhouse Complex across the street from the proposed TWO hotels and I am in complete agreement that traffic on San Antonio is bad enough as it is, without the additional burden of hotel traffic.
To talk about "a hotel shuttle, a car-sharing platform, incentives to use mass transit and a free bike-sharing program, would cut the potential traffic by at least 20 percent" is pure fantasy. Business travelers or for that matter any other visitors would not use public transportation to get to or from these hotels except in very rare cases, so that claim is disingenuous.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
