METRO Passes Budget Including Funds for Improving Energy Corridor Transportation

METRO Passes Budget Including Funds for Improving Energy Corridor TransportationMETRO recently passed a $1.26 billion budget which includes dollars for a new local bus service within the Energy Corridor.  The Eldridge Crosstown Route will run north and south along Eldridge Parkway from Westheimer to Memorial Drive.  It is proposed to run east west along the IH 10 corridor connecting apartments, restaurants, hotels and businesses in the Energy Corridor District. If accepted by H-GAC’s selection committee, the next step is to work out funding with the Federal Transit Authority’s Job Access Reverse Commute grant program and enter into contracts with the bus operator. METRO’s additional proposed projects are the construction of new light rail lines that will run north, east and southeast from downtown Houston, a new Park & Ride lot in Pearland and a commuter bus route to Texas 6 in Missouri City.  Additionally, METRO plans to buy 100 hybrid buses and construct 100 new bus shelters.
