Speakers at the session described public transit services oriented toward tourists in San Antonio, Corpus Christi, and South Padre Island. Session participants discussed additional research needs, outreach activities, and possible demonstration projects. A meeting was also held with representatives from the Texas Department of Transportation and BikeTexas to discuss current bicycle and walking programs oriented toward tourists in the state and areas for additional research, pilot testing, and technology transfer.
