TAPPING INTO REGIONAL PARK & RIDE EXPRESS SERVICE
The project taps into the existing US 290 and IH-10 Katy Freeway HOV lanes, allowing employees to use Park and Ride lots along these corridors to the Northwest Transit Center. In addition, Uptown Houston will construct a Uptown Transit Center which will tap into the existing Southwest Freeway HOV lanes and the Westpark Tollway, allowing employees to use Park and Ride lots along these corridors to the Uptown Transit Center. A unique Uptown bus will take riders to Post Oak Boulevard from these locations.

Uptown Transit Connector
The Boulevard project taps into the existing US 290 and IH-10 Katy Freeway HOV system, allowing employees to use Park & Ride lots along these corridors. Buses along this route will connect to the Northwest Transit Center where riders transfer to buses destined for Post Oak Boulevard.
Additionally, by constructing the Uptown Transit Center at Westpark and Anderson Street, the project will tap into the existing Southwest Freeway HOV lanes and Westpark Tollway, also allowing riders to use Park & Ride lots along these corridors.
West Loop Dedicated Bus Lanes
Texas Department of Transportation's transit improvements connect the Northwest Transit Center to Uptown via the 610 West Loop with elevated dedicated bus lanes, running from north of Woodway Dr. to Post Oak Boulevard. The 610 West Loop’s dedicated bus lanes will consist of a two-lane structure allowing buses to move more efficiently and predictably between the Northwest Transit Center and Post Oak Boulevard.
The Northwest Transit Center and the Uptown Transit Center will tap into the existing Park and Rides and HOV Lanes along the US 290, IH-10 Katy Freeway, Westpark Tollway and Southwest Freeway corridors.
