With traffic congestion at record levels and more vehicles added to Texas roadways daily, TxDOT understands that public transportation is a vital part of the state’s future. Getting people out of cars and onto buses and metrorail trains can reduce travel time and increase the quality of life for Texas travelers.
TxDOT provides grants to cities and municipalities to encourage and support public transportation. We work with the Federal Transit Administration, non-profits, and local government entities to promote the use and development of public transportation throughout the state. Under TxDOT’s oversight, public transportation will continue to play an increasing part in getting Texans where they need to go.
Public transportation is available not only in cities, but in many rural areas as well. Use our Find a Ride feature to identify public transportation options in your area. For more information, visit our Public Transportation Division page.
