Northwest Transit Center

This is a guest post by social media specialist Brent Taylor.

The Northwest Transit Center is a strategically-placed, highly-functional transit center in the METRO system. From here, the 290 Park & Ride passengers can reach several destinations, including two of the largest job centers: downtown Houston and the Uptown-Galleria area. As each transit center presents unique walking, driving, and boarding conditions, it's important to know the area to minimize the possibility for danger when waiting for a bus.

Northwest Transit Center has a unique traffic flow due to the access to the 290 HOV/HOT lane. Be sure to take note of all traffic signs, and yield to other vehicles when necessary. Try to give a little grace to other drivers who may not be as familiar with traffic and parking at the Transit Center.

While on site, I had to pull down a promotional card from a wall. Please don't litter our facilities with fliers for the latest show – no matter how great your new favorite band may be.

When entering and leaving NWTC, remember there are stops outside the transit center, too. Be mindful of slow-moving buses or pedestrians attempting to board on Old Katy Road.

Keep children close at the transit center. During my visit, a child jumped off the bus and ran quickly away from her mother. In just a matter of moments, a child can easily take a nasty fall, or worse, like run into the transit center traffic.

And one more thing… in the video below. Brentmoji.jpg
