TCC helps The T

Students on busWhen The T visited Tarrant County College Northeast and Northwest campuses last month, it was not for ordinary pick-up and drop-off visits. The T, Fort Worth’s Transportation Authority, made it easier for TCC students to voice their transportation needs by bringing its Master Plan Project Bus to them. The mobile surveying center toured around town about five months, making stops at local events and institutions.
The T Master Plan will evaluate existing transit service and demand, identify opportunities to expand transit service, lay the groundwork for project development and funding processes and determine a schedule for moving forward. The plan is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.

Some of the initial findings show that participants want:
• More frequent buses for fewer hours rather than less frequent buses for longer hours
• More weekday services than on weekends
• More places to be served even if demand is low
You may learn about initial survey findings and about the strategies planned for ways to improve the T at the Master Plan presentation on Wednesday, Nov. 18, at 11:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. at the Intermodal Transportation Center, 1001 Jones Street, Fort Worth, TX 76102. Presentations are scheduled to begin at noon and at 6 p.m.
