Midtown Management District Circulator System - The Goodman Corporation (TGC) developed and mapped a route for a circulator service to be utilized during the 2016 NCAA Final Four Tournament, which was hosted in Houston, Texas. In addition to the planning work relative to the system, TGC provided the client with mapping, marketing, and outreach assistance. TGC also assisted the District in the solicitation and acquisition of a third party contractor to provide the service, to include the completion of a price analysis to ensure that the proposal received was fair and reasonable. The TGC-developed route and service was utilized again during Super Bowl LI by the Houston Super Bowl committee.

Houston Downtown Greenlink and Orange Route Circulator - TGC completed the planning, development, pursuit of funding, and procurement associated with the development of a stand-alone circulator system in Downtown Houston. This included the completion of a demand analysis, definition of a route structure (to include various alternatives for eventual system expansion), the completion of ridership reports, updates, and overall program management. TGC was also responsible for securing approximately $5M in funding for the purchase of the vehicles through earmark funding. The system continues to operate today with an annual ridership of over 204,000.

Additional Circulator Efforts - TGC has performed recent circulator system planning work related to systems that would serve the City of Galveston, the City of Kemah, and for Emancipation Park in Houston, Texas. These efforts include the completion of parking analysis, demand analysis, circulator route plans, pedestrian-access interface analysis, the development of cost analysis, and the pursuit of funding towards implementation.
