It just got easier to get around Missouri City yesterday.
A partnership between Missouri City and METRO launched on-demand, curb-to-destination service for Missouri City residents and was marked by a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Missouri City and METRO officials.
The new service is called the Missouri City (MCTX) Community Connector. Riders can make a reservation for curbside pick-up. They can also board at the top of every hour at one of two anchor sites: Walmart Super Store and the Missouri City Park & Ride.
"We're tickled to kick this off," said Missouri City Mayor Allen Owen. "We waited a long time to do this. I am one of those who believes mobility is a regional effort. I think for our students and our seniors, this is going to be special."
The regular fare is $1.25 one-way. Students and seniors ride half price.
Service is available seven days a week from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. within the zone. To reserve a ride, call 713-739-3823 at least three hours in advance of when you want to depart.
METRO and Missouri City will continue to explore options to add more transit connections. "Adaptability is the key to success of this pilot project we hope will act as a model for those that follow," said Tom Lambert, METRO's president & CEO.
