No Boil Water Notice in Affect

There is no boil water notice in effect for Harris County MUD 148 residents or businesses. The City of Houston has issued a Boil Water Notice for their water system and other systems effected by the City’s issue. While local media (and social media) are reporting boil water notices for the City and those other Water Districts in our area, these notices do not pertain to Harris County MUD 148 receivers, as the District maintains independent water production facilities. Again, Harris County MUD 148 is not currently under a Boil Water Notice.

In the event a Boil Water Notice needs to be issued for our community, notification will be provided. For immediate and up-to-date 24/7 information, you can always reach out to WWWMS, Inc. 24-hour Customer Service line at (281) 895-8547.

Harris County Transit Launches On-Demand Transportation

Harris County Transit has launched its inaugural on-demand service, Harris County Transit Plus, for residents living in Generation Park in precincts 1, 2 and 4.

This affordable service allows residents to schedule transportation from point A to point B, within two established zones, running along the Northeast quadrant of Beltway 8. The service provides a faster trip and enhanced passenger experience through areas of the county that are less densely developed.

The fare to ride is $1 for adults and $0.50 for children, seniors and those with disabilities. Cash, transfers from other buses and the METRO Q® Fare Card are acceptable forms of payment.

The North Zone runs along Beltway 8 between Highway 59 and the northeast portion of Beltway 8. The South Zone runs between the northeast portion of Beltway 8 to Wallisville Road. The transit zone also includes the area within three-quarters of a mile in either direction of these sections of Beltway 8.

The METRO Eastex Park and Ride is the northernmost anchor point and the Jim Fonteno Annex is the southernmost anchor point. A central transfer anchor point in Generation Park is where riders can transfer between zones. Additional anchor points can be found in each zone at the Walmart parking lots located at 9235 N. Sam Houston Parkway E and 5655 E. Sam Houston Parkway N.

Two 18-passenger buses will travel within these two zones every Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

“Transit Plus is the result of the taking a closer look at the needs of residents and barriers to service that are unique to this section of Harris County. We have prescribed a system that works best for this area,” said Harris County Community Services Department Executive Director Dr. Adrienne M. Holloway. “We are innovating to meet the needs of residents who require flexible transit options and of businesses that require a mobile workforce.”

“Our survey revealed a transportation gap in the county’s Northeast corridor,” said Paul Weisser, assistant director of Transit Services for the Harris County Community Services Department. “Our goal is for Transit Plus to offer a great customer service experience for residents while allowing them to get where they need to be in a timely manner and at an affordable price.”

Residents make a reservation by phoning the transit call center to be picked up and dropped off at any flex stop within the designated zone(s). Reservations can be made up to three days in advance or as late as one hour before pick up. Residents without a reservation can catch a ride at one of the anchor point locations.

Transit Plus operates within the zoned areas and does not follow a traditional, fixed bus route, thereby allowing businesses and other service providers in the area to benefit from increased foot traffic. Reservations can also be made using a QR code.

Transit Plus also allows riders to transfer to existing Harris County, Texas, routes servicing Sheldon, Channelview, Cloverleaf, Crosby, The Highlands, Baytown and La Porte, as well as the METRO Eastex Park and Ride where METRO fares apply.

Harris County Transit conducted a survey of approximately 97,000 residents in five zip codes to determine the specifications for Transit Plus. Funding for this project, slated to run through February 2022, is approximately $285,000 and is provided by the Harris County Commissioners Court and the Federal Transit Administration.
