For the snooty people who like to trash any side of this city that doesn't begin with north (if you're not one of them, then my comments shouldn't bother you) and say they wouldn't live anywhere in this city but the northside, i hope you enjoy wasting your time stuck in traffic while i enjoy a mostly traffic free commute.

And have you been on De Zavala outside of Shavano Park during rush hour? I dare you to get from the Woods of Shavano to right past the Post Office in under 30 minutes.
I don't go west of Shavano Park around that time unless I have to. Or in general really, once you pass University Methodist on DeZavala, count me out!

Agreed. And I imagine you will be able to add NW Military to that list once the seemingly endless construction of new lanes there is complete.
One of the best-kept secrets out there. If I ever wind up moving finding a place like the Deerfield / Inwood area is a tall order.

The traffic is not that bad here, you just have to use a little common sense and alternate routing to beat the congested areas. Heck, even at its worse the stretch of 1604 from Culebra and Bandera roads still moves (albeit at a much slower pace). I've seen much worse in places such as Washington and Atlanta...

Wow, I didn't know traffic was such a devisive issue. You people are really railing against your neighbors on here, that doesn't sound very Texan to me. Keep in mind, "people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones."

I live near bulverde/evans rd. The shorted route, distance wise, is going up 281, and turning right of evans. I could also take 281 to 1604, then go up bulverde, but traffic is a MESS. I actually go all the way to GREEN MOUNTAIN ROAD and take evans road backwards to get home. Not too much faster, but at least i'm moving

Add to that the funnel at the end of 410 going East to I-35
