Fort Bend County (FBC) Public Transportation operates a weekday Commuter Park and Ride and a Demand Response service called Fort Bend Transit. In 2006, the Sugar Land City Council approved an Interlocal Agreement with FBC to help support these transit services. Fort Bend Transit's mission is to provide safe and efficient public transportation services while maintaining service quality and customer satisfaction.
The target users of the Commuter transit services are residents of Fort Bend County who regularly travel to Greenway Plaza, the Galleria area, or the Texas Medical Center. There are two convenient park & ride lot locations in Sugar Land where riders can park for free to utilize this service (see bottom of page for locations). Fares range from $2.25 to $3.50 each way.
The Demand Response Service offers curb-to-curb rides made by reservation at least one business day, or up to 30 days in advance. Fort Bend Transit does not offer same-day service for Demand Response trips. Rides are based upon time and space availability and can be made for any location within Fort Bend County. The service is a shared ride and can be used for shopping, work, medical appointments, or any other activity. The service is for anyone 13 years of age or older (children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult), and all vehicles are wheelchair accessible. Best of all, the fare is only $1 each way! To register and/or make a reservation, call 281-633-7433. The services do not operate on county holidays.
