Transit for Benbrook Elderly and Disabled Expands “Guaranteed” Ride Days 

Beginning the week of October 1, 2018,
Benbrook is assigned three guaranteed days: Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday

The City of Benbrook contracts with the Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The "T"), and in partnership with Catholic Charities Fort Worth, to provide transit service to Benbrook residents who are elderly (age 65 or older) and/or are disabled.

Benbrook residents can schedule rides to take place Monday through Friday, but rides are not guaranteed for Benbrook riders on all those days. Sometimes, routes and times do not allow for service to Benbrook on days other than the “guaranteed” ride days of Tuesdays and Thursdays. Riders are always encouraged to schedule important trips such as medical appointments on guaranteed days.

However, the “T” recently received a grant that allows an additional “guaranteed” day for Benbrook riders. Beginning the week of October 1, 2018, Benbrook is assigned three guaranteed days: Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.


  • To register and ride:

    ·      Call 817-336-8714 to register for the program and/or schedule a trip.

    ·      Trip requests are taken Monday through Friday, 7:00 AM to 5:30 PM, two to seven working days in advance of your desired trip date.

    ·      Trips may be scheduled for medical appointments, shopping, recreation, school, or work.

    ·      Trips can be scheduled to take place Monday through Friday (though rides are only guaranteed on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays), 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM; there is no service on weekends or holidays.

    ·      Benbrook residents are guaranteed rides on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. 

    ·      One-way fare is $2.50 per person.
