Transit Development Plan Survey - Survey CLOSED
The City of New Braunfels is exploring public transportation options within the City Limits as part of a Transit Development Plan that will help shape the future of transportation in New Braunfels. A brief survey was designed to gather information about residents' travel patterns and preferences, including the types of changes that would allow you to use new public transportation services if they were available. The survey is now closed and the data is being analyzed to help form the path forward.
The City of New Braunfels benefits from growing mobility options. Our community is served by Alamo Regional Transit on-demand service, as well as the Alamo Commutes trip planning and carpool app. The 2021 New Braunfels Transit Study presents an assessment of future transit options and a foundation for an implementation plan. These resources can be accessed in the links below.
Public Transit Study
The City of New Braunfels completed a Public Transit Study in June 2021.
The Alamo Area MPO contracted with KFH Group to conduct this fixed-route transit study for the City.
This effort gathered community and stakeholder input to identify unmet transportation needs and propose strategies to develop and expand transit alternatives.
Alamo Regional Transit (ART) is operated by the Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG).
ART next-day pickup service can take you to medical appointments, work, school, shopping, and more.
Fares start at $2 for in-town trips and increase to maximum $12 for out-of-county destinations. Schedule a ride by calling 1-866-889-7433.
Transit Development Plan
In March 2023 the City of New Braunfels was informed that it had been identified by the Federal Transit Administration as a small urbanized area (UZA). This designation allows the City to become a direct recipient of Federal Transit Funds. This designation allows the City greater flexibility in developing a transit program that meets the needs of residents. Information about this program can be found in the resources below.

Input from the community about this process is important to the City of New Braunfels and its partners. Comments related to transit or the completed Public Transit Study may be directed via email to the City of New Braunfels Transportation & Capital Improvements Department or call 830-221-4275.
