What is it?
It’s a service that provides personalized, curb to curb transportation in a defined zone within Missouri City. We pick you up, and then drop you off at your intended destination. METRO curb2curb shuttles connect you with METRO’s larger transportation network at anchor points within the zone. For instance, your “first mile” of traveling may be on a METRO curb2curb shuttle between your residence and an anchor point, where you transfer to another METRO service. Your “last mile” of traveling may be on a METRO curb2curb shuttle between the anchor point and your residence.
Which vehicle shown above will transport me?
You may be transported by either vehicle.
One is a low-floor, wheelchair-accessible bus.
The other is a wheelchair-accessible minivan.

Reservations are subject to availability.
Does my fare entitle me to free transfers?
After tapping your fare card on the validator upon boarding the METRO curb2curb shuttle, you can transfer for free to any local METRO service for the next 3 hours.
If you plan to transfer to a Park & Ride bus, you would tap your fare card on the validator box as you board the METRO curb2curb shuttle. It would deduct $1.25 from your card. Then, for the next three hours, if you tap your fare card on the validator box inside a Park & Ride bus upon boarding, only the difference in cost will be deducted from your card. So if your Park & Ride bus costs $4.50 for a one-way trip, only $3.25 would be deducted from your card.
The METRO curb2curb app allows you to book a ride on the Missouri City curb2curb shuttle, on-demand via your smartphone.
