Connect Transit no longer has enough buses to meet the demand of riders who use the company’s shuttle service, spokeswoman Mary Jo Naschke said.
The transit group, which operates mostly on the mainland and in parts of Brazoria County, used to contract with LeFleur Transportation to provide a service that allows people to call in and request a shuttle. LeFleur Transportation notified Connect Transit in September that it would be closing its operations, Naschke said.
Connect Transit will take over the shuttle, also called demand response, until it finds a solution, Naschke said. The sharing of resources will likely mean the service will be able to accommodate fewer people needing rides, she said.
