Wait, Hollywood Way is a public road? That's odd; I never knew that locals used that as part of their morning commute. Oh well. I guess I don't have a huge problem with where the money's coming from, but rather I wonder why UOR just doesn't build a cross-walk and/or extend the water taxi (which they may still do). That being said, they do already have a walkway on the north side of Hollywood Way that goes from Turkey Ln. Road up to CityWalk

Quite a few do use it for commute, including me. It's the best way to get to Dr. Phillips high from I-4, and a bunch of neighborhoods back there. Every day I go under the citywalk bridge, twice to get to I-4 east. So yes it's still a very public road. Not nearly as crowded as Kirkman for general traffic, it's really only of use if you live in the immediate vicinity. It's nice around 7-8AM on Universal Blvd, nobody is there yet except maybe the Universal landscapers. (10AM Is a different story, or after park close, especially on event nights). School buses also use Hollywood way for Dr. Phillips.

Thanks for the link metro

Seems like a good idea but some are sure fussing a lot about it and more or less saying universal is trying to cheat the city
