     History
    It was used to get people from the parking lot by the river up to the shopping center downtown. when the new radio shack complex was built half of it got filled in, the other half is still there.

    edit by 2X:
    The Tandy Subway ran northward along Taylor Street from an underground station between Weatherford and 2nd Streets (next to the entrance to the Tandy Center shopping mall) to a portal in the Trinity River bluff, then westward through a large parking lot along the river. The total length was about 0.7 mile (1.1 km), of which about 0.2 mile (0.35 km) was underground.

    The terminal was originally located just north of 2nd Street, and exited into the basement of the Leonards store. When the Tandy Center was built, the terminal was relocated to just north of where 1st Street would intersect Taylor if it ran through there. The tunnel was also excavated further south to 3rd Street, but this was never used; instead, a restaurant kitchen was placed in it at about 2nd Street.
