Ride the Green Wave, Sugar Land’s Holiday Shopping Express
Sugar Land, Texas
- A pilot project called the Sugar Land Holiday Express will gauge interest in shuttle transportation for shoppers in the City’s major retail district.
Scheduled every weekend from Nov. 25 through Jan. 1, the shuttle will originate from Mercer Stadium, 16403 Lexington Blvd., and run a route that includes:
● Mercer Stadium;
● First Colony Mall;
● the Market at Town Center; and
● Sugar Land Town Square.
The shuttle will begin operation every Friday at noon and end one hour after First Colony Mall closes. On Saturdays and Sundays, service will begin a half hour before the mall opens and run an hour past closing.
A $1 all-day pass will allow riders to travel back and forth between each destination.
The pilot program is intended to increase shopping access in the Town Center area through the utilization of parking at Mercer Stadium.
Sugar Land’s first-ever Comprehensive Mobility Plan, adopted in May 2011, recommended shuttle service as a way to improve retail/business connectivity, ease congestion and promote economic development.
“We are excited to launch this pilot program to improve the convenience of holiday shopping and enhance connectivity in one of our primary retail centers,” said Director of Transportation and Long-Range Planning Patrick Walsh. “Riders will have the opportunity to provide their feedback through an online survey.”
The pilot program is a partnership with The Houston Wave, a shuttle
service provider with experience in the Houston region.
