In keeping with the continuing efforts to optimize the success of area businesses and residents, the Energy Corridor District has joined METRO to launch the 75 Energy Corridor Connector.
This new bus service connects Energy Corridor District businesses and residents to the Addicks Park & Ride lot and the route runs the entire length of Eldridge Parkway between the Memorial Drive and Richmond, providing employees and residents who live and work in the Energy Corridor with a quick, convenient ride to stores, restaurants and businesses along the route.
Energy Corridor employees who live in the downtown and midtown areas can connect to the 75 Energy Corridor Connector by riding the 228 Addicks and 229 Kingsland/Addicks from the Central Business District to the Addicks Park & Ride. The Connector also links with popular routes like the 82 Westheimer, the 67 Dairy Ashford, the 53 Briar Forest and the 131 Memorial. The free transfers to the connecting routes provide efficient and economical transit options. In addition, special categories of bus patrons, including students, disabled and elderly, qualify for a 50% fare discount.
Service runs every 15 minutes, from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m., and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., and every 10 minutes from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Anyone interested in using METRO’s transit service will need a METRO Q Fare Card that uses Smart Card technology, allowing users to load value electronically on an internet account or add fare value at a number of retail locations.
