Fort Bend Transit broke ground on Monday at what will be their new Park and Ride located on the westbound frontage road of Westpark Toll Road (FM 1093) near Cinco Ranch. This is about 10 miles southwest of the Energy Corridor where many local residents work.
New Park and Ride Hopes to Ease Traffic
“If drivers utilize the busses, it would certainly reduce traffic on Westpark,” says Fort Bend County Precinct 1 Constable Chad Norvell.
Currently, the county is in the process of planning its services and exploring the possibilities of introducing a new commuter bus service that will connect the Westpark Park and Ride facility to the Energy Corridor and other employment sites.
The construction of the bus service is expected to be finished by November 2024.
When the project was first announced last August, it was estimated to cost $6.6 million.
An overwhelming need was determined for this project after multiple public meetings at Cinco Ranch Public Library.
