Tarrant County helps bring a new on-demand transportation service to Crowley
Feb. 13, 2020 – A new transportation option will soon be available to Crowley residents.
The Crowley ZIPZONE, a partnership between Tarrant County, Trinity Metro and the City of Crowley, will begin in May. It will provide transportation to medical facilities and shopping options within the city as well as connections to three bus routes (route 6, route 66X and route 72) in Fort Worth.
Tarrant County Precinct 1 Commissioner Roy Charles Brooks hailed the new service.
“It is important to work toward feasible transportation options for all of our Tarrant County cities,” Brooks said. “Thanks to a partnership between the Regional Transportation Council, Trinity Metro, and Tarrant County Precinct 1, residents of the City of Crowley will have a new way to move within their city and to connect to the larger public transportation network.”
Primary funding for the ZIPZONE was provided by the North Central Texas Council of Governments through a $333,000 Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program grant.
“This will be a big benefit because it’s an affordable way to get around town, especially for our seniors,” said Jack Thompson, assistant city manager and economic development director for Crowley. “We are excited to work with Trinity Metro and Via (the contracted service provider).”
The Crowley ZIPZONE will operate 6:30-10 a.m. and 3:30-7 p.m. weekdays and will include service to Texas Health Huguley Hospital Fort Worth South and the Gateway Station shopping center. The cost for a one-way trip will be $3.
