Service directly into the mall parking area had been discontinued in November 2012 when a disagreement arose between mall management and Brownsville Metro over pavement repair.
As Brownsville Metro Director Norma Zamora explained at the time: “There was no way that the Brownsville (Metro) or the city could take responsibility for repairing the entire parking lot and all the damages that were being expected to be fixed,” Zamora said, adding that more than city buses drive through the mall parking lot. “They’ve got the delivery trucks and all sorts of school buses that go through there.”
