DCTA Expansion Shaping Our Future

Comprehensive Operational Analysis

Connect Bus Service Enhancement
Comprehensive Operational Analysis (COA)

The Comprehensive Operational Analysis (COA) was conducted in an effort to improve bus service provided within DCTA member cities of Lewisville, Highland Village and Denton. The goal of the analysis was to develop service recommendations that would maintain the strongest areas of existing service, strengthen the weaker areas, fill existing service gaps and ensure all significant transit markets are well served. The grant funded COA process involved data collection, operational efficiency analysis, service planning, financial modeling, public outreach, stakeholder engagement and the development of recommendations for service improvements.

DCTA conducted the COA within Lewisville & Highland Village, presented recommendations to the public and implemented service changes in Highland Village in April 2016 and in Lewisville August 2016. The COA process was also conducted within Denton, presented to the public, incorporated into the FY2017 agency budget and will be implemented in May 2017.
