In September, the Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County’s Curb2Curb app went live, allowing customers to book rides on its Community Connector shuttle service ahead of time.

On the app, riders can book a ride anywhere from 15 minutes to seven days in advance and track the progress of the vehicle while waiting for it to arrive, according to METRO’s website.


METRO’s Community Connector serves much of the Missouri City area, providing on-demand transportation from any location in the service to any other location in the service; it will also transport riders to and from an anchor stop—the Walmart on Hwy. 6 or the Missouri City Park and Ride on Fondren Road—to any location within the zone.

Community Connector hours are 5 a.m.-7 p.m. daily, and the fare is $1.25 per ride. Customers without access to the app can still call METRO to schedule a ride.
