Next steps for A Better Connection

(FORT WORTH, TX – Nov. 11, 2020) – As Trinity Metro continues working toward redesigning its bus network to create A Better Connection (ABC), the agency is hosting a series of public meetings to keep everyone updated and to generate more input. Trinity Metro is now considering three options for redesigning the bus network without increasing the agency’s operating budget.

“We’re asking the public to help us weigh the options,” said President & CEO Bob Baulsir. “We can simplify the bus system and serve some new areas or we could increase frequency to more of the network. Another choice is to add more on-demand service instead of hourly routes.”

Board Chairman Jeff Davis said, “Now is the time to take a thoughtful look at how we want our transportation services to better serve the community.”

The meetings will be held via Facebook Live and continue through Dec. 9.

Facebook Live sessions

6:30-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 11

11 a.m.-12 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 14 (Spanish)

12-1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 18

6:30-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 2

12-1 p.m. Monday, Dec. 9

ABC key elements

The bus system redesign is intended to make substantial improvements by reviewing the entire network and focusing on five key trade-offs. Through the earlier rounds of research and feedback, Trinity Metro has created three options for the redesign:

  • System Simplification – consistent, all-day service on straighter and simpler routes with some new service areas.
  • Walk More, Wait Less – increased frequency to more of the network.
  • More ZIPZONEs – more on-demand ZIPZONE options instead of hourly neighborhood routes.
