Conroe City Council unanimously voted Nov. 15 to launch the Downtown Circulator Shuttle program, which will provide free shuttle services within downtown Conroe.

According to previous reporting, Mobility Planner De’Andre Guin presented the new shuttle program during a Nov. 10 workshop meeting. A special meeting was called to launch the program before the holidays. Capital Projects and Transportation Director Tommy Woolley said during the Nov. 15 meeting the shuttles will run Fridays and Saturdays from 6 p.m.-12:30 a.m.

Guin said during the Nov. 10 meeting the route is a 10-minute, one-way loop that will stop at the North San Jacinto area, Honor Cafe area, Owen Theater area, Metcalf and North Main streets, Dragonball Z cafe area and First Baptist Church area.

The program will begin Nov. 25 and is slated to run for three years, according to Woolley.
