None. 
BACKGROUND:
In accordance with the second amendment to the Interlocal Agreement (ILA) between the City of Conroe and The Woodlands Township, every fiscal year the City and the Township shall evaluate the potential use of up to ten percent of the Urbanized Area’s annual formula apportionment under FTA Section 5307, to pay for complementary American with Disabilities Act (ADA) paratransit services. This annual allocation may be based on the proportionate share of ADA operating expense for the City and the Township, which must be agreed to in writing between the City and the Township.
 
The City of Conroe is proposing the following subarea allocations based on the proportionate share of ADA operating expense for the City. In previous and current fiscal years, The Woodlands Township has not utilized funds due to no requests for paratransit service within the Township’s service area.

In 2015, the City of Conroe implemented its "Conroe Connection" fixed route bus system, Since that time, they have experienced an increasing number of requests for paratransit service related to the fixed rate service.
