Take the Challenge
The Houston Tomorrow Department of Transportation New Bus Network Challenge will take you on an adventure around Houston on Metro's new frequent bus network. Follow the trail of clues to complete the challenge and you'll win a shirt, a hat, and support HTDOT's work to bring balanced, safe transportation to Houston.
And the first ten people to finish win a free bus pass.
This Saturday night at midnight Houston will still be running a 1960s bus network, like most major cities. However at 3am on Sunday morning Houston's Metro will launch an entirely new 2015 bus network to match the region that Houston has become and connect a million jobs to a million homes.
Riding the bus will be free all week long for everyone, so you need to go out and try out the new frequent network. Houston Tomorrow decided it was time for a challenge, basically a fun run where you ride the frequent bus to five locations around town to show you how far you can go and how close Houston has become.
Starting Monday morning at 9 am, you can pick up your introduction packet and your first clue at our offices at 3015 Richmond, Suite 201. Come by any time between 9 am and 5 pm Monday - Friday, August 17 - 21 and complete the challenge by the end of the night, Saturday, August 22.
To fully complete the challenge and support the Houston Tomorrow Department of Transportation, set up your challenge page here. Everyone who donates or raises at least $100 becomes a member of HTDOT and get a shirt. If you both raise $100 and complete the challenge, you will also get a limited edition baseball cap.
The first ten people to fully complete the challenge will receive a bonus transit pass provided by Metro so that you can ride the frequent network for free for a little longer.
