803 SB during rush hour essentially runs at same speed as 3 SB, which defeats the purpose of using the Rapid. I commute from Crossroads Station to Brodie Oaks Station. The route really bottlenecks at Cesar Chavez between downtown and the southbound turn on to Lamar, especially at BR Reynolds. I think it would be a great idea to re-route during rush hour, to follow the 801 SB route down S. First to Barton Springs. And take Barton Springs westbound to Lamar. The only stop that will be affected is the makeshift stop at Guadalupe/2nd St. My guess is this would shave 15-20 minutes off the route time during those peak hours in the afternoon.

....since there needs to be station, this would be impossible. 803 was rolled out right ontop of 801--and Burnet road etc was designed in the 1950's when you needed car to get around, It was intentionally not designed to be walkable. Scaling back transit stops of any kind is not a wise move here.
