DETCOG to Hold Public Meeting on Transportation Needs & Services

May 4, 2021 - The Deep East Texas Council of Governments is preparing a 5-Year Transit Plan for the Region. As part of the planning process a series of public meetings are being held to give the residents of each county an opportunity to share their transportation needs.  The meeting for Shelby County will be held in the Windham Civic Center/Community House, 425 San Augustine St. in Center on Thursday, May 13, 2021 at 10am.

“Some of our counties do not have any public transit.  In some of our counties you can call and schedule a ride a couple of days in advance.  Some of our cities have fixed bus routes,” said DETCOG Regional Planner Bob Bashaw. “The planning process gives us an opportunity to look for better ways these resources could be used.”

Anyone providing transportation is also encouraged to provide information on their services at the meetings. Matching up available rides with needs is an important part of the plan.

If you are unable to attend any of the meetings you can also submit comments and information at:
