Beginning early next year, Harris County Transit Services is expanding bus service to areas not serviced by METRO. The new routes will link residents of Pasadena, Baytown, La Porte, Clear Lake, Seabrook, South Houston, Highlands and Crosby into a single transit system.

"It is our hope that more and more residents will see this as an affordable way to get around. We tried to take people's travel needs into account. For instance, you can get on a bus in Crosby and go to the Strawberry Medical Clinic in Pasadena for at most, only a dollar," said Ken Fickes, Director of Harris County Transit Services.

The maximum price is $1 per ride. Seniors and those who are disabled will pay 50 cents. All students with an ID are free.
