Beginning today, Denton County Transportation Authority’s (DCTA) GoZone service expands to Castle Hills as a newly annexed part of Lewisville.
Whether it’s running an errand or heading to the nearest A-train station, GoZone is here when it’s needed, where it’s needed. An on-demand rideshare service, powered by Via, riders utilize GoZone for trips within two dedicated zones: Denton and Lewisville/Highland Village GoZones. A fleet of dedicated vans is used to pick up and drop off riders at assigned virtual bus stops within the zones. Payment for GoZone can be made with a DCTA pass or purchased as single trips for $.0.75 each.
“We're happy to welcome the Castle Hills community onto DCTA's GoZone service,” said Javier Trilla, Assistant Vice President of Innovation and Information Technology. “The expansion into Castle Hills was a natural extension of our Lewisville services and further ties together the community by offering a transit option that gets you anywhere within Lewisville on a single per-trip fare.”
Passengers simply download the DCTA GoZone mobile app to book their trips in real time. If you don’t have a smart phone, just call DCTA customer service at 940-243-0077 to create an account and book a trip. Riders can also pay with exact cash on board. The service operates 365 days per year with the following hours of operation:
- Monday through Thursday from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.
- Fridays from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m.
- Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.
- Sundays and holidays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Monday through Saturdays, rides must start and end within the same zone (either Denton or Lewisville/Highland Village/Business 121), while on Sundays, riders can book rides between the zones.
If you have a special need for a vehicle with a bike rack or one which is wheelchair accessible, then it’s easy to request accommodation. Call DCTA or simply use the mobile app to set the profile preference for wheelchair accessibility.
