Mark Your Calendar: DCTA Hosting May 2019 Open House Meetings

May Open House Meetings

The Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) invites the public to attend its May open house meetings to provide feedback on proposed agency projects. During the meetings, DCTA will present agency proposals, including the expansion of Denton Enterprise Airport on-demand service, changes to the University Pass Program, A-train service updates and minor bus schedule adjustments. The come-and-go meetings will give people an opportunity to speak with individual DCTA staff members about the presented topics.

 

Meeting Presentation Topics for Discussion

DCTA has numerous projects happening in the next few months and needs passenger feedback to enhance service and projects for the many communities the agency serves. Below are highlights of the topics that will be discussed during the meetings:

  • Denton Enterprise Airport On-Demand Expansion – In mid-May, DCTA is planning to expand its service area by adding a new zone to cover portions of the residential area south of I-35E and west of Fort Worth Drive.
  • Changes to University Pass Program – Following DCTA’s new local fare structure that launched in January, the agency is proposing to align the current prices with its existing reduced fare discount that will be available to students, faculty and staff with proper verification documents and school ID.
  • A-train Schedule Updates – DCTA is proposing to add four additional northbound and four additional southbound trains to the midday rail schedule. Also, schedules will be adjusted for new Positive Train Control (PTC) requirements DCTA is implementing on its A-train. Bus Schedule Updates – Minor schedule updates will be made to match the updated A-train schedule.
