Officials from surrounding chambers of commerce will join representatives of both public and private sectors on Tuesday, March26, 4:00pm at the official opening of the first of several bus passenger shelters on TAPS Public Transit routes in North Texas and Southeastern Oklahoma.

The park and ride shelter is located at 2300 W. Morton  St., Denison in the Morton Street Plaza Shopping Center and serves the busy Red River Route between Texas and Oklahoma.

Morton Street Plaza Shopping Center owner, Myrtice Wilson, donated the shelter, the construction, and the land for the park and ride lot facility. Brad Underwood said support from private citizens and business owners lets the transit agency locate fixed route bus stops at centrally located and easily accessible spots along major thorough fares.

 

"Ms.  Wilson  has  been  very  generous  by  not  only  offering  space  in  her  shopping  center  for  the shelterand the dozens of vehicles that park there daily, but she wanted to make sure the shelter itself was first class," said Brad Underwood, TAPS Public Transit CEO and Executive Director. The made in USA steel and glass structure can accommodate up to 12 people protecting them from sun and weather.

Since its launch last September, the Red River Route has tripled in ridership and TAPS Public Transi tofficials are enthusiastic about continued growth in the coming year. Alliances with private employers including Durant based Choctaw Casino Resort, Delaware North, Alorica and ETS Lindgren, offers workers in Texas a very cost effective alternative to single vehicle commuting.

A revenue generating promotional partnership with Choctaw Casino Resort alsooffersa safe, dependable, comfortable ride for Texas residents visiting the property for entertainment.

Anyone can ride the Red River Route. Trips cost as little as $1 eachway. The Red River Route can be boarded at TAPS Main Office, 6104 Texoma Pkwy in Sherman; Morton St. Plaza, 2300 W. Morton St., Denison, or Choctaw Casino Resort's Travel & Tour Bus Entrance.

 

Route information and details on the location of all park and ride lots is available on the Internet at TAPSBUS.COM, or by calling (800)256-­0911.
