The Fort Worth Transportation Authority (FWTA) will soon begin bus service to Tarrant County College’s Erma C. Johnson Hadley Northwest Center of Excellence for Aviation, Logistics and Transportation at Alliance Airport.

FWTA will serve the Alliance area through an extension of Route 63, which starts in Downtown Fort Worth, and the new Route 64, which provides express service between Denton and Fort Worth. Route 64 will provide arrivals and departures throughout the day and evening, while Route 63 is designed to serve commuters in the morning and afternoon peak travel times. Stops at the Hadley Center of Excellence begin Sept. 26 and will allow riders to attend class in TCC’s aviation, logistics and transportation programs as well as access other area businesses.

TCC began working with FWTA to establish the route when TCC acquired the Alliance facility in 2012. Students, faculty and staff provided feedback on transit needs during the development of FWTA’s Transit Master Plan, which will guide service in the coming years.

The Hadley Center of Excellence trains students for careers as pilots, aircraft maintenance specialists, dispatchers, distribute on managers and other aviation, logistics and transportation-oriented jobs. The worldwide aviation industry is expected to need nearly 1.3 million new commercial pilots and maintenance technicians in the next two decades, according to Boeing’s 2016 Pilot & Technician Outlook, a respected industry forecast.

At 163,500 square feet, the Hadley Center of Excellence is the largest aviation education facility in Texas. Students learn with professional training equipment, including a fuselage mockup of a G-280 Gulfstream aircraft donated by Gulf Aerospace and aircraft windows donated by Southwest Airlines. Logistics students use a warehouse laboratory with an on-demand warehouse management system.
