AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) Friday announced a major redesign and relaunch of Texas.gov, the official website of the State of Texas.
Officials share that the upgraded site improves the user experience with a new, mobile-friendly and easy-to-navigate interface, enabling Texans to quickly access the information or government services they need, anytime, anywhere, and on any device.
“The new site offers highly relevant and helpful information with more than 30-pages of new content, offered in both English and Spanish, on topics such as driver services, operating a business in Texas, moving to Texas, COVID-19 resources, and more,” DIR officials said via a news release.
“It also provides secure, direct access to more than 800 official government services, including vehicle registration renewal, driver license and ID renewal, vital records, professional and occupational licenses, recreational and hunting licenses, and many more.”
Developed by DIR in coordination with Deloitte, the new Texas.gov highlights DIR’s commitment to helping Texas government agencies transform the way they serve Texans. With comprehensive search optimization and a scalable content management system, Texas.gov provides users quick and easy access to important Texas government topics and services.
“This is particularly crucial during high-profile or statewide events such as the COVID-19 pandemic and natural disasters, when users seek reliable information from official government resources. Additionally, Texas.gov meets the state’s accessibility requirements and performs well on any device or assistive technology,” DIR officials added.
In 2000, Texas launched the official state online portal as texasonline.com, which became Texas.gov in 2010. Since its inception, the site has had over 240 million total site visits and processed over 245 million financial transactions, according to state records.
