  • Review of options for service to regionally significant events; 
The options presented were developed to provide additional transportation options for current passengers as well as to attract new users. 

Consideration of changes to The Woodlands Express bus service may impact a number of riders and be of interest to potential new riders. Staff presented an overview of the potential changes at the October 18 Board of Directors meeting.
