UPTOWN HOUSTON TERMINAL FACILITY
UPTOWN DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY
Uptown Houston is the largest non-downtown urban center in the nation, attracting approximately 80,000 Home-Based Work (HBW) trips from the greater Houston Area. In 2011, 23,000 commuters traveled from the 12 METRO park & ride facilities in the Southwest, Westpark, Katy, and Northwest corridors to Uptown Houston. The 23,000 Uptown Houston commuters had limited options to utilize commuter transit service. Additionally, the local bus service in Uptown Houston was traveling in mixed traffic lanes, which caused increases in traffic congestion and slower transit travel times along Post Oak Boulevard.
The Uptown Development Authority (Uptown) addressed the lack of express bus service and overall congestion within the District by requesting TGC to prepare an advance planning effort related to the development of a bus rapid transit (BRT) terminal and transitway along Post Oak Boulevard.
The product of this effort allowed TGC to successfully pursue $61.8M in federal CMAQ and STP funding for the implementation of the project, which, as of January 2017, is currently under construction.
