Lately with the construction happening 2 stops that i frequently used - ferst and hemphill and ferst and state have been moved/removed making it very inconvenient for me!

The closest route for me is the green route, so I often have to go some stop before I can take a different bus.

It's annoying when I wait for the bus and then can't fit because it is too crowded. Some drivers are nice and let students stand on the steps, but other drivers refuse to move the bus until people are either standing in the middle of the bus or get off the steps and have to wait for the next one.
