East Texas Regional Transportation Coordination Plan  

In 2003, the Texas State Legislature passed House Bill 3588, in which Article 13 mandated statewide coordination of all public transportation providers. The purpose of this bill was to eliminate overlapping service areas so that each public transportation service could operate more efficiently.

  • The first Regional Transportation Coordination Plan for Texas State Planning Region 6 (East Texas) was created in 2006. In addition to fulfilling the requirements of House Bill 3588, it was created to better address the needs of East Texas residents who depend on public transportation services to maintain their quality of life. The result of that Plan was the identification of 15 separate projects to promote the coordination of transportation. The original Plan is available for download in the Resources section of this website.

  • The goal of the 2011 Regional Transportation Coordination Plan, which serves as an update to the 2006 Plan, is to provide as many transportation options as possible by creating partnerships between transportation providers and service organizations within the region.

  • A copy of the final 2011 Coordination Plan is now available for public review on our resources page. Details regarding the time and location of the Steering Committee meetings are posted on the home page of our website per Open Meetings regulations as well as our calendar.  The public is invited to attend.
