METRO, Community Leaders Celebrate Park & Ride Funding Secured by U.S. Rep. Al Green 


On Thursday, Aug. 3, 2023, METRO Board Members and executive leadership gathered with U.S. Rep. Al Green, Missouri City officials, and NewQuest Properties to celebrate the $5 million in federal funding secured by the congressman and awarded to the Authority for its Missouri City Park & Ride. During the event, Green presented a $5 million check symbolizing the community project funding that METRO will receive.

METRO Board Chair Sanjay Ramabhadran praised the congressman's efforts to procure transit funding and added that public-private partnerships are a win-win for everyone.

"This is a great example of ‘Together, we can do more’ — to bring about safe and effective connections and mobility solutions for a growing population," said Ramabhadran. “Thanks to the efforts of the congressman to secure this grant, the Park & Ride in Missouri City will also bring transit to ongoing development."

"This is a signifgicant step towards better transportation options in northeastern Fort Bend County," said Congressman Green. "What we are doing today will benefit future generations."

Representatives from NewQuest Properties also attended the event.

“We are thrilled to share this significant development that has come to fruition through the extensive collaboration between NewQuest Properties, METRO, the city of Missouri City, and Fort Bend County," said NewQuest Properties Partner Kyle Lippman. "It is our third partnership with METRO, and we are grateful to Congressman Al Green for his efforts to secure federal funding to support this initiative.”  

The state-of-the-art transit facility will serve as an anchor in Phase 3 of NewQuest Properties' Fort Bend Town Center, a mixed-use lifestyle center that will include housing, retail, and entertainment venues. Missouri City and Fort Bend area residents will enjoy greater access to public transportation including:

  • a covered parking facility with 1,750 spaces
  • a covered waiting area
  • ticket vending machines
  • real-time digital transit information
  • restrooms

Commuter services will run between the Texas Medical Center and Missouri City, while also providing connections to downtown Houston. The facility will also provide connections to the Authority's existing on-demand curb2curb service.


METRO's new Missouri City Park & Ride will give Missouri City and Fort Bend County area residents greater access to transit. It will provide parking for up to 1,750 vehicles, a covered waiting area, ticket vending machines, real-time transit informations, restrooms and more.
