The City of Brownsville serves as an urban transit district (UTD) for the Brownsville urbanized area (UZA) under the Texas Transportation Code Chapter 458 and therefore receives state funding. Brownsville Metro (B-Metro) is a department of the City of Brownsville and is governed by its City Commission and advised by a seven-member Transit Advisory Committee.
The City of Brownsville has provided public transit services, operated as Brownsville Urban System, since 1978 and rebranding itself to Brownsville Metro in 2011. B-Metro provides fixed route local bus service and ADA complimentary paratransit service. These services are primarily provided within the city limits of Brownsville. The City of Brownsville served as the lead agency for the Metro Connect Service from 2013 to 2018, and on January 1, 2019, Metro Connect services were transferred to Lower Rio Grande Valley Development Council (LRGVDC) and rebranded to RGV Metro Express. La Plaza at Brownsville Terminal facility houses the private transit providers who operate statewide, national, and international services alongside B-Metro’s public transit services.
