Transcript Motor Truck Lines Supplementing rail and water transportation facilities, Houston has a system of motor truck lines that serve a wide expanse of territory. These lines operate over good roads, they perform dependable, quick service and are becoming increasingly popular with local distributors. A joint warehous and freight depot is maintained for use by all truck lines and surplus trucks are assigned at this station for special service desired by Houston industries. Daily service is given on most of the lines and on a few which serve the larger communities the service is two to three trucks daily. The character of the service and to a great extent the volume of business handled are largely dependent upon road conditions. Harris county and adjoining counties are each year giving increasing consideration to the value of road construction and proper maintenance and are annually adding materially to an already large mileage of hard surfaced roads.
