Fort Bend County Transportation Inviting Public Comments About Changes to Public Transportation Schedules

Comments Will Be Accepted Until January 24th, 2020 at 5 pm.

Post Date:01/07/2020 1:00 PM

The public is invited and encouraged to comment on proposed services changes to Fort Bend County Public Transportation’s (FBCPT) services.  FBCPT is proposing four service changes to increase the effectiveness and utilization of services currently offered to the public, as described below. 

  1. Galleria Route to Fort Bend and the Texas Medical Center (TMC) PM Route to Fort Bend - There have been several changes to the pick-up and drop-off times as well as name stop changes.

     

  2. All Commuter Services – The Texas Medical Center, Greenway Plaza, and Galleria route will include a stop at the HWY 36 (Fairgrounds) Park & Ride for both AM and PM routes. 

     

    To view the detailed proposed schedule for items #1 and  #2, visit our website at www.FBCTransit.org https://www.fortbendcountytx.gov/government/departments-o-z/public-transportation/public-comment

  3. Richmond/Rosenberg Point Deviation Route – The current circulatory route will be eliminated and replaced with three Demand Response vehicles that will service the Richmond and Rosenberg area only.  Ridership data indicates clients prefer to schedule a ride and have the bus pick them up from their location rather than walking up to three-quarters of a mile to a bus stop and waiting for the bus.  Removing the fixed pick-up locations will allow an increase in ridership.

The public comment period is your opportunity to provide comments on the above service changes.  Throughout the comment period, written comments and/or requests for public meeting/hearing and questions may be submitted to Tennille Jones, Community Relations Manager, 301 Jackson Street, Richmond, TX 77469, or via email to Transit@fortbendcountytx.gov.  Comments/requests will be accepted until Friday, January 24, 2020, at 5 pm. If no changes are made as a result of public comments received, the service changes will take effect on February 3, 2020.
