Transportation Resources in Rosenberg
Rosenberg is one of the major population hubs in Fort Bend County. With that being said, the Fort Bend County Commissioner’s Court back in 2005 approved the creation of a new entity known as the Fort Bend County Public Transportation Department. The primary purpose of the department is to serve the population of Fort Bend County- specifically the populations that are primarily rural. There are difficulties for rural populations to be able to get to the doctor, grocery shop and generally complete their activities of daily living with trustworthy transportation.
Fort Bend County Transit, as it is now known, serves residents who need to get to and from destinations in Fort Bend and Harris Counties. There are two types of service provided by Fort Bend County for its residents. The first is Demand Response and Commuter Park and Ride Services.
Demand Response Service is a curb to curb, shared ride service that picks up riders from all areas in Fort Bend County- including Rosenberg. If you are a Fort Bend County resident all you need to do is register for service over the phone. Once you are registered you can start making reservations at least one day in advance of the ride that you need or up to 30 days in advance. Rides are available Monday through Friday during normal business hours.
Commuter Park and Ride Service allows you to leave your vehicle at specific locations in Fort Bend County and take a bus to designated locations in Harris County- the Texas Medical Center, Greenway Plaza and the Galleria. The locations where your vehicle will be left with other riders in Fort Bend County are an AMC Movie Theater, the University of Houston Sugar Land campus and the Fort Bend County Fair Grounds in Rosenberg. This is a convenient resource if you plan on working in one of those business hubs of Houston.
