South Padre Island, Texas #freetransit a success

Transport plans move forward » Port Isabel-South Padre Press: "During the Form Based Code workshop on Jan. 22, the City Council came to the consensus to further develop the current draft transportation plan which has been in the works since 2010. The original idea of the transportation plan was to create a multiple mode plan that considers not only cars, but also the city bus system, bike lanes, sidewalks, and parking. The SPI Public Transit Department has made significant strides in the past few years with the growth and success of the Wave, the city’s free transportation service, as well as the groundbreaking of the Multi-Modal Facility last November.  Transit Director Jesse Arriaga attended Wednesday evening’s City Council meeting to present some Public Transit projects for approval."
