Houston region commuters spend an extra 52 hours in their car annually
due to traffic congestion – costing drivers over $1,000 each year in wasted fuel and time.
TAG congratulates the members of the Texas 83rd Legislature for the successful passage of HB 1 and SJR 1 – the first step in sustainable transportation funding for the State of Texas. Click here to personally thank your elected leaders.
The Houston metro area is expected to grow by another 3 million people by the year 2025, reaching a total population of $7.6 million. Our existing transportation infrastructure cannot meet the demands of nearly 3 million more commuters in just over 10 years.
TAG supports all modes of transportation for the Houston region. We believe providing options for mobility promotes economic prosperity, growth and an improved quality of life.
The Houston region is an internationally competitive market, and we must work together to solve our state’s transportation crisis and ensure our region secures needed funds. Now is the time to unite the Houston region and advocate for our needs. Join today!
