TAMU Transit and Dual Ridership Program

  1. 1. The District & TAMU Bus Operations Transit InitiativesThe District and TAMU Bus Operations have a long standing history of coordinating the twosystems that date back to 1991 when The District installed passenger shelters in the twocities. At that time the two systems worked together to create shared stops in the City ofCollege Station.Since that time the two systems have cooperated on numerous projects which include but arenot limited to:1. TAMU allows The District to utilize their radio tower and their radio frequency;2. TAMU allows affiliates to ride TAMU buses, which includes Blinn students.3. TAMU and The District continue to work together to coordinate stops and shelter locations;4. The District sought and received a Congressional earmark in 1996 to procure small buses for TAMU which are in use today;5. The two systems over the past 2 years have began to use the same bus and rider tracking system on all buses (Mentor);6. Two years ago, The District took over all ADA paratransit operations from TAMU. Since that time, TAMU has taken back the service after central funds were provided for faculty and staff ridership;
  2. 2. 7. Effective September 1, 2011 The District began allowing all TAMU students to ride BTD buses without charge upon showing their student ID;8. Two years ago TAMU began to report all of their performance and ridership data to The District so it could be reflected in the National Transit Database each year so we could demonstrate to FTA that the two cities are a high transit use location;9. TAMU agreed to serve on The District’s Parking board which is responsible for establishing parking rates for the new Kelly Terminal and Garage;10. Over the past summer The District provided summer employment opportunities to TAMU drivers during the summer break.The two systems are continually studying ways in which we could coordinate bus routes in thetwo systems in order to eliminate any duplicate bus routes or just makes routes moreefficient. For example a project that has been discussed is for The District taking responsibilityfor TAMU routes in far south College Station so TAMU could use their resources closer to thecampus where the density shows a greater need for more service. The District would thenestablish a shared transfer stop where the patrons from S. College Station could transfer to aTAMU bus for the final leg of their trip if it was the campus.The District and TAMU Bus Operations will continue to work to coordinate the two systemsinto a seamless mobility program serving the two cities and Brazos County always keeping inmind the funding parameters that are placed on each system by their respective fundingpartners.
