What We Do


Houston TranStar is a unique partnership of representatives from the City of Houston, Harris County, METRO and TxDOT who share resources and exchange information under one roof to keep motorists informed, roadways clear and lives safe in the fourth most populated city in the United States.

Established in 1993, the Houston TranStar brand is globally recognized for managing southeast Texas’ transportation system and functioning as the primary coordination site for state, county and local agencies when responding to incidents and emergencies.

We mitigate congestion on area roadways using cutting-edge technologies, assist and consult neighboring jurisdictions with traffic management services and offer guidance to various agencies throughout the country, as well as to delegations across the globe, on important transportation and emergency management topics.
