With traffic congestion at record levels and more vehicles added to Texas roadways daily, TxDOT believes that public transportation is vital to the state’s future and to all Texans. Public transit reduces congestion, pollution and fuel consumption while increasing quality of life for all travelers.
TxDOT provides grants to transit providers in urban and rural areas of the state to encourage and support public transportation. We work with the Federal Transit Administration, non-profits, and local government entities to promote the use and development of public transportation throughout the state. Under TxDOT’s oversight, public transportation will continue to play an increasing part in getting Texans where they need to go.
