Near Southside ZIPZONE 101. Trinity Metro Blog.

Trinity Metro ZIPZONE, powered by Via, is an affordable and convenient on-demand rideshare transportation service that started serving the Near Southside area Sunday, July 19, 2020. The Near Southside ZIPZONE is the fourth on-demand service provided by Trinity Metro. In June, the Crowley ZIPZONE was launched to help residents get to destinations within the city and also to connect with all of Trinity Metro’s other services throughout Tarrant County. In 2019, the Mercantile ZIPZONE was started to connect bus and TEXRail riders in the area near Mercantile Center Station. The Alliance ZIPZONE began in early 2019 to help connect bus passengers with jobs in the area. The on-demand service is an innovative solution that complements Trinity Metro’s other public transportation options.
