New routes offer transit to more locations, more convenient service in North Fort Worth

Bus riders can now travel north of Loop 820 or west to the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base or to River Oaks, thanks to a group of new routes that began service this week. In addition, two routes will serve Tarrant County College (TCC) Northwest Campus, and customers can enjoy convenient weekend service that features the same schedule on both Saturday and Sunday.

The Fort Worth Transportation Authority (FWTA) has been developing a plan for the north quadrant since its Transit Master Plan was unveiled last year.

“We looked at a multitude of options to best utilize our resources for maximum impact,” said FWTA President/CEO Paul Ballard. “What our team has developed are routes that will reach new areas in Tarrant County, including another TCC campus.”

The implementation of the Transit Master Plan, which focuses on serving more people in more places, was unveiled in 2016.

“Last fall, we implemented Route 64, known as the North Texas Xpress, which serves Alliance and Denton,” Ballard said. “This helps meet the growing demand for public transit options for employees of AllianceTexas and higher education institutions like TCC’s Hadley Center of Excellence and the University of North Texas.”

Highlights of the new service:

Route 11 (extension). Travels north of Loop 820 on Beach Street; serves FWTA’s Intermodal Transportation Center (ITC), Mercantile Industrial Park, Alliance Town Center and Walmart at North Tarrant Parkway.

Route 12 (extension). Covers portions of the former routes 1C, 1D and 11; serves ITC, Mercantile Industrial Park, Stockyards and JPS Diamond Hill Clinic.

Route 14. Minor change, using North Sylvania instead of North Riverside; serves ITC, the Stockyards, Walmart at Beach and SH 121.

Route 15 (restructured Route 1N). Stays on Main Street with no branches or variations; serves ITC and Fort Worth Stockyards.

Routes 44. Covers portions of former routes 17 and 1B; serves Northside Branch Library, North Side High School, J.P. Elder Middle School, Northside Neighborhood Association, Far Greater Northside Historical Neighborhood Association and TCC Northwest.

Route 45. Serves TCC Northwest, the Stockyards and 930 apartments on four properties.

Route 46. Jacksboro Highway; serves ITC, Town & Country Shopping Center, Landmark Lakes Shopping Center and two Walmart stores.

Route 90. Long Avenue; provides crosstown connections and covers portions of former routes 1A, 1B, 1C and 1D; serves JPS Diamond Hill Clinic and Walmart on Jacksboro Highway.

Route 91. River Oaks Boulevard; serves NASJRB, River Oaks, Ridgmar Mall, Stockyards, Target and two Walmart stores.
