ZIPZONEs connect passengers with existing transit services to provide a better customer experience.

Trinity Metro and the City of Crowley are partnering to provide a new transportation option to Crowley residents. The Crowley ZIPZONE, which will begin in May, will provide transportation to medical facilities and shopping options within the city as well as connections to three bus routes (route6, 66X and 72) in Fort Worth.

The Crowley ZIPZONE will operate 6:30-10 a.m. and 3:30-7 p.m. weekdays and will include service to Texas Health Huguley Hospital Fort Worth South and the Gateway Station shopping center. The cost for a one-way trip will be $3.

Primary funding for the ZIPZONE was provided by the North Central Texas Council of Governments through a $333,000 Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program grant.

Roy C. Brooks, Tarrant County Commissioner Precinct 1, said, “It is important to work toward feasible transportation options for all of our Tarrant County cities. Thanks to a partnership between the Regional Transportation Council, Trinity Metro and Tarrant County Precinct 1, residents of the City of Crowley will have a new way to move within their city and to connect to the larger public transportation network.”

The new service in Crowley is the third on-demand service for Trinity Metro. A fourth option, the Near Southside ZIPZONE, is planned for late spring.

“Helping customers reach their destination requires a combination of traditional transit and innovative solutions,” said Wayne Gensler, vice president and chief operating officer of bus and paratransit at Trinity Metro. “By introducing service in new areas, we are able to connect passengers with our existing services to provide a better customer experience.”
