The Downtown Ambassadors were especially busy during the fourth quarter of last year as they welcomed many visitors for the National Finals Rodeo who were staying in downtown hotels, visiting the NFR Cowboy Christmas shopping event at the Fort Worth Convention Center and enjoying Visit Fort Worth’s live music events in General Worth Square.
- Between October and December of 2020, the ambassadors:
- Made 1, 527 business contacts.
- Reported 402 cases of graffiti and stickers to the Clean Team.
- Provided hospitality assists to 11,455 residents and visitors.
- Provided 108 safety escorts, 40 motorist assistance and 261 homeless contacts.
The Ambassadors circulate throughout downtown in their vibrant green pickup, on foot, on bicycles and on Segways to help visitors, create a friendly and welcoming environment and add extra eyes and ears on the street.
The crew is on duty downtown from 7 a.m.-midnight, seven days a week. Contact the on-duty supervisor at 817-484-3723.
