Transcript Life in the contraflow lane. Just over ninety percent of the students at UH are commuters. Here are some selected statistics for you to consider. Any of you currently living on campus and wishing to get an apartment in west Houston, pay close attention. In the Houston area, 439 miles of a 1,071 mile freeway system are completed — construction ahead. Vehicle miles travelled in Harris County totalled 19.4 billion miles in 1985. The average travelled daily per vehicle was 24 miles. Westheimer averaged over 69,000 vehicles per weekday. 110,000 vehicles passed through the intersection of Hillcroft and Westheimer per weekday. The average monthly cost for a student to operate a new car is $466 and a used car, $276. So take the bus. METRO runs 744 busses daily covering 108 routes. They carry 253,925 passengers daily, serving an area of 1,275 square miles (the state of Rhode Island is 1,049 square miles). Will Houston ever get a rail system? — Will we ever fly around in cars like the Jetsons? For now, two hours or more of the day can be wasted, creeping along on the freeway.
