Notice of Public Comment
Fort Bend County Public Transportation (FBCPT) was formed in June 2005 and is governed by Fort Bend County Commissioners Court. FBCPT offers general public, commuter, demand response shared ride and point deviation fixed route bus services to the citizens of Fort Bend County. FBCPT understands that providing ample opportunities for the public to participate in decision making is essential to delivering transportation solutions that meet the needs of Fort Bend County.
A Citizen’s Guide for Public Involvement
The Public Transportation Plan (PPP) is a guide for FBCPT’s ongoing public participation activities. The purpose of this PPP is to provide guidance when seeking public input related to projects and service changes and to identify techniques and methodologies for soliciting and considering public input. The PPP aims to offer early and continuous opportunities for the public to be involved in the decision making process and to consider the identification of social, economic, and environmental impacts of proposed transportation decisions. It is intended as a guide on how FBCPT will sustain its efforts to engage community members throughout the service area. The PPP is intended to evolve to meet the changing needs of the community and FBCPT may periodically review and revise these methods to incorporate new and innovative ways to involve the public in transportation decision-making processes.
Richmond / Rosenberg Point Deviation Route Proposed Changes
On Tuesday, April 14, 2015, Commissioner Court approved the Interlocal Agreements to provide transit services to the citizens of the cities of Richmond and Rosenberg.
The Richmond/Rosenberg Point Deviation Route Service operates along a fixed route and keeps to a timetable, but if a reservation is made, the bus or van can deviate from the route to go to a specific location, such as a house, child care center, or employment site. Once the pick-up or drop-off is made, the vehicle returns to the fixed route. Fort Bend Transit has reviewed the ridership data over the past year as well as listened to our passenger’s needs/wants and have made some changes to the three schedules (Blue Route, Green Route, Purple Route). A public comment period will begin on February 27, 2017 and will end on March 29, 2017.
