The Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) will host a public meeting on behalf of the Fort Worth Transportation Authority (FWTA) to discuss proposed Interstate 35W (I-35W) weekday commuter bus service between Fort Worth and Denton. DCTA’s public meeting will be held in conjunction with the agency’s Program Services Committee meeting on Tuesday, June 14, at 12 p.m. at DCTA’s administrative office located at 1955 Lakeway Drive, Ste. 260 in Lewisville, TX.
In addition to DCTA’s public meeting, FWTA will also host public meetings to present information about the proposed I-35W commuter bus service. Listed below are FWTA’s public meeting dates, times and locations:
Wednesday, June 15, at 7 p.m.
North Park YMCA

Fort Worth, TX 76244
Thursday, June 16, at 6 p.m.

The bus route will primarily operate along I-35W between Fort Worth and Denton.
