Did you know that Catholic Charities Fort Worth is the second largest provider of public transportation in Tarrant County?
Catholic Charities works from 6:15 am to 5:45 pm Monday through Friday. They provide rides to individuals 65+ years of age, those who are disabled, and those over 18 who are low income to help them attain transportation self-sufficiency, with a specific focus on employment and employment-related trips, medical trips, and senior social trips.
Their fares start at $2.00 per one-way trip and they currently serve Azle, Lake Worth, Saginaw, Benbrook, Sansom Park, Westworth Village, Crowley, Everman, Forest Hill, Grapevine, Haltom City, Keller, Bedford, North Richland Hills, Arlington, Mansfield, Kennedale, Hurst, Euless, Bedford, and Alliance areas.
If you are interested in getting involved with this great organization and the service they provide, you can volunteer with their Tarrant Riders Network. Volunteers can drive their own vehicle, choose their own schedule, and make a tangible difference in the lives of fellow community members.

Rail~Volution will be holding its annual conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania this year, from October 21-24, 2018. Their conference is “the only transportation conference that showcases the link between land use, transit, and development.” It is an event where planners, grass-roots and non-profit organizers, academics, transit officials, developers, health and housing advocates, and elected officials can come together to discuss, share, and innovate – all to provide “solutions for building livable communities with transit.”
