Northwest Transit Center Improvements

We're upgrading our facilities to bring you even better service. This major renovation will include a new ramp, bus platform and more parking. But your bus service will stay the same. This project is scheduled to be completed in December 2020. Come back and visit this page for updates.

Ongoing Improvements

Parking
Your bus service will not change, but all parking inside the transit center will be closed. A new parking lot located on the north side of Old Katy Road will be opened.

Shuttle
FREE shuttles will transport riders to and from the new parking lot. Shuttles are available weekdays only 6 – 9 a.m. and 3 – 7 p.m.

Patrons parking on the north side of the transit center will have access to shuttle service which will transport passengers from the lot across Old Katy Road to bus bays.

HOV / HOT Access
All HOV / HOT access to and from the transit center will be closed. This includes ramps to and from the I-10 main lanes and 290 HOV / HOT ramps. Detour routes for buses and private vehicles will be in place.

Commuters can take the following detours:

  • Morning US 290 travelers exit Old Katy Road and follow signs to Uptown or I-10 East toward downtown.
  • Evening I-10 (Katy Freeway) westbound travelers have two options to access US 290 HOV / HOT Lanes:
    o Exit Silber / North Post Oak Road and follow signs.
    o Exit Washington Avenue and follow signs to Old Katy Road.

Transit centers are sheltered waiting areas located where several bus routes converge. They serve as efficient "hubs" to allow bus riders from various locations to assemble at a central point to take advantage of express trips or other route-to-route transfers. Our clean, safe and comfortable transit centers provide bus patrons with a wider selection of destinations through greater transfer opportunities, and provide their respective communities a permanent presence of transit service.
