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 below for locations). Fares range from $2.25 to $3.50 each way depending on destination.
Fort Bend Transit announced the launch of their new mobile ticketing option. The mobile fare passes are now available in the Token Transit digital app, which can be downloaded from Apple's App Store or Google Play.
Passes can be used for all of Fort Bend Transit's services - both commuter and demand response. The cost for mobile passes is the same as the corresponding physical ticket option. The app can be downloaded for free.
Fort Bend Transit takes great pride in connecting communities within Fort Bend County and being a smarter way to travel for the county's citizens. The implementation of mobile ticketing is a continuation of FBT's efforts to provide convenient, affordable, reliable, and safe public transportation.
Demand Response Service
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.
