Measuring Multimodal Network Connectivity Pilot
In partnership with H-GAC, the City of Sugar Land was selected as a pilot for the Federal Highways Administration Multimodal Network Connectivity Program due to its characteristically suburban layout and its wealth of existing data. The pilot study allowed us to better understand the challenges and benefits for pedestrians and bicyclists in this type of land use development.

Partnerships / Committees
Fort Bend County (FBC) operates a Commuter Park and Ride and a Demand Response service. The target users of the Transit Services are residents of FBC who regularly travel to Greenway Plaza, the Galleria Area, the Texas Medical Center, and other destinations in Harris County and within Fort Bend County. In 2006, the Sugar Land City Council approved an Interlocal Agreement with FBC to help provide Commuter and Demand Response transit services.
On a monthly basis, FBC shares operational data for Transit Services with the City, which is then transformed to a Power BI dashboard.

Commuter P&R service provides a weekday service to the Texas Medical Center (TMC), Greenway Plaza, and the Galleria area in Houston. Services may begin as early as 4:30 am and end as late as 9:00 pm with no weekend service.
