PASADENA, Texas - The mayor of Pasadena is taking the first steps to bring bus service back to the city.

Mayor Jeff Wagner and other city officials have been meeting with Harris County Transit Services representatives to look at the possibility of reinstating bus service.

A proposed plan being finalized looks to improve on the route structure used from 2010-2012. The plan includes four routes that cover about 70 linear miles, including low-income areas and those with the highest need for transportation.

The routes would also include stops at San Jacinto College, Strawberry Clinic and Bayshore Medical Center, as well as retail, grocery and pharmacy chains.

The proposed plan would also allow Pasadena residents to access Harris County Transit routes, as well as the Houston METRO system near Richey Road.

The city plans to hold a series of public meetings in September to introduce the proposed plan to residents. The meeting dates will be posted on the city's website: www.ci.pasadena.tx.us.
