Service operating from METRO's Pinemont Park & Ride lot will come to an end on Friday, January 24, 2014.

The lot is closing permanently due to TxDOT's reconstruction and widening of US 290.  The work includes demolishing the ramp that connects the Pinemont Park & Ride to the Northwest Freeway HOV lanes.

Service from the lot will operate as normal on its last day Friday, January 24, 2014. 

Customers who park at the lot and ride the bus or who carpool and access the HOV lane via this lot are asked to consider using either the West Little York Park & Ride lot or the Northwest Transit Center as alternatives.
