Metro McAllen launches new Park and Ride

by Public Information Office | Jul 11, 2016

 – The City of McAllen Transit Department announces the launching of its new complimentary Civic Center Park and Ride service to enhance access to the La Plaza Mall Area.    

 The City of McAllen’s park and ride service features continuous bus service with parking located at the former Civic Center site on 10th and Expressway 83 for shoppers and employees of the numerous retail centers in the area.  The service is free and will run every 15 minutes on Fridays and Saturdays from 7:30 AM to 10:30 PM.  Riders will be dropped off and picked up at the intersection of Uvalde Street and South Main, as well as along Savannah between Main and Bicentennial.  Citizens are encouraged to utilize this Park and Ride service to alleviate congestion and parking issues currently being faced in the area. 

 “We feel that this new park and ride service will allow quick access to the Mall and surrounding shopping centers for all walks of life.  Construction in the area has affected congestion as well as parking availability, and we hope this service can make it easier for the public to access that area of town,” said City of McAllen Transit Director Mario Delgado. 

 The service is launching in anticipation of the busy summer months as well as the coming holiday season.  For more information contact: 956-681-3510
