New bus lanes to be added in Galleria area

HOUSTON - The Galleria area will soon have new bus lanes along Post Oak Boulevard.

Houston City Council unanimously approved the transit budget for the project on Wednesday. The mayor said the lanes will ease traffic congestion, allowing more people to visit the heavily populated area.

The project will be paid for in part by federal money from the Texas Department of Transportation.
