The Woodlands Express Park and Ride

The Woodlands Express service provides a comfortable, convenient and economical way to commute. Destinations include the Texas Medical Center, Greenway Plaza, as well as the Central Business District of Houston. Scheduled service is provided Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

The Woodlands Express service from the Research Forest Park and Ride has been revised. The Woodlands Township Transit has suspended The Woodlands Express commuter bus service from the Sterling Ridge and Sawdust Park and Ride locations effective Monday, March 23, 2020.

Passengers who typically catch the bus from the Sterling Ride and Sawdust Park and Ride locations are encouraged to utilize the Woodlands Express service from the Research Forest Park and Ride location. 

This consolidation of service locations provides for the continuation of service to Downtown Houston, the Medical Center, and Greenway Plaza.  The regular routes and schedules from Research Forest Park and Ride’s will remain unchanged at this time to provide adequate space for social distancing and seat spacing onboard the buses. The midday run back to Research Forest will remain in place.

We encourage all riders to download the Mobile Ticketing app and to follow The Woodlands Transit@TownshipTransit for alerts and updates.
