  1. I would love to ride the bus from the Conroe P&R to downtown and have been a huge supporter of the project. The issue I have is that you only have 3 inbound and outbound times and they are 11 hrs apart (dropoff and pickup at stop 2). For us that work 8 hrs a day and cannot receive any overtime, this is 3 hours a day completely wasted for me.
