In partnership with Denton County higher education institutions, we have established a University Pass Program to provide an affordable and convenient commute alternative for students, faculty and staff affiliated with local colleges and universities. Students, faculty & staff of the University of North Texas (UNT) receive free fare with the following DCTA services by presenting their UNT identification cards: UNT Campus Shuttles and Denton Connect Buses.
NCTC IDs will no longer qualify for acceptable fare. Access to Denton Connect bus service will require appropriate fare.
The University Pass Program offers two types of passes – local and regional.
Local System fares are valid on the A-train, Denton Connect Buses, UNT Campus Shuttles and North Texas Xpress Commuter Bus (Denton to North Park & Ride and Reverse only). These fares are not valid for paratransit trips.
Regional System fares are valid on the A-train, Denton Connect Buses, UNT Campus Shuttles. It also includes access to fixed-route bus and rail services operated by DCTA, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), Trinity Metro and Trinity Railway Express (TRE). These fares are not valid for paratransit trips.
