What is this project about?

Need a ride? We've got you covered! ETCOG's rural transportation service, GoBus, provides thousands of trips a month to jobs, medical appointments, social services, shopping, or wherever customers wish to go. But more than this direct service, we work with EasTexConnects to coordinate transportation services across the region.

What is EasTexConnects? Simply put, it is a group of individuals working to improve transportation choices in East Texas. The EasTexConnects committee includes:

  • Elected officials (or appointees)
  • Citizens
  • Representative of social service agencies
  • Local transportation providers
  • Businesses

Mission
Create and connect a comprehensive, flexible, and sustainable public transportation system throughout and beyond the 14 counties of State Planning Region 6.

How do I get involved?

We've listed some resources that can help, but we also want to hear from you! When you think about public transportation, what do you most want? What are your ideas for making East Texas a more connected community? If you ride GoBus, how are we doing?

What is the Regionally Coordinated Transportation Plan?

Staff work with the EasTexConnects committee and an outside vendor to develop and maintain a five-year Regionally Coordinated Transportation Plan for the East Texas area. The 2021 update of this plan is currently underway, and our current plan can be viewed in the documents filed to the right.
