West Bellfort Park and Ride 11415 Roark Road (at West Bellfort) 77031
The development of a connector trail from Keegan’s Bayou Trail to the Metro Park and Ride will enable pedestrian and bicycle traffic to have a direct connection to public transportation. Future connecting trails to a pedestrian and bike over/underpass of the Southwest Freeway may connect to Storey Park and West Houston such as the proposed Sharpstown Trail. Public bus riders can connect to downtown Houston, the Texas Medical Center and other major employment centers in the METRO service area. Park & Ride facilities also serve as staging areas for vanpools and carpools. This could potentially reduce traffic volume. METRO’s local buses are equipped with easy-loading bike racks capable of carrying up to two bikes at a time. The multi-usage facility could provide racks to have the option to lock bikes to take buses without a bike, storing it for a return trip. This trail requires a pedestrian bridge over Keegan’s Bayou. The total trail and bridge distance will be about 200 feet.
