THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (December 20, 2018) – The Woodlands Township’s Park and Ride bus service, known as The Woodlands Express, will offer two new services beginning January 2, 2019: a new (pilot program) 8 a.m. run from the Sterling Ridge Park and Ride Lot, and a new stop at The Texas Medical Center. Details are below.
New Sterling Ridge 8 a.m. Run
The current last morning run from Sterling Ridge is 7:25 a.m. A six-month pilot program beginning Jan. 2 will add a run at 8 a.m. After six months time, the Township will evaluate performance and decide if the new run will become permanent. This new run creates additional opportunity and choice for passengers in proximity to the Sterling Ridge Park and Ride, and gives a new option for riders seeking a later start time.
New Texas Medical Center Stop at UT School of Dentistry
Also starting Jan. 2, 2019, a new stop in the Texas Medical Center will pick up and drop off at the UT School of Dentistry, in front of the UT Health Building. This will be the new last and first stop in The Medical Center during morning and evening runs, respectively.
The Woodlands Express service provides a comfortable, convenient and economical way to commute to downtown Houston and beyond. Destinations include the Texas Medical Center, Greenway Plaza, as well as the Central Business District of Houston. Scheduled service is provided Monday through Friday, excluding holidays from three Park and Ride locations in the Woodlands. The Woodlands Express also offers mobile ticketing, a “Where’s My Bus” locator app and a Twitter feed for updates.
