DCTA Offering Free Rides to Veterans and Active Military Personnel for Veteran’s Day

2017 Veterans Day Promotion Graphic


The Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) will honor veterans and military personnel with free rides on Friday, November 10 – the official day in which the federal government will observe Veteran’s Day. In order to receive free rides all day, veterans and active military personnel must show their military ID, state-issued ID with veteran/military designation or discharge papers to agency bus and rail operators.


DCTA’s Veteran’s Day free-ride promotion is valid on the following services:

  • A-train Commuter Rail
  • Denton and Lewisville Connect Bus
  • Highland Village Connect Shuttle
  • University of North Texas Campus Shuttle


“We at DCTA salute all veterans and active military personnel and want to offer free rides on our services to honor those in our community who have made great sacrifices for our country,” said Jim Cline, DCTA President.


The promotion does not apply to the following DCTA services: Community and Frisco On-Demand service, Access, North Central Texas College (NCTC) Campus Shuttle, Collin County Transit, North Texas Xpress or vanpool services. In addition, passengers who plan to transfer from DCTA to the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) will need to have or purchase a DART local system pass for that portion of their trip.
