Below are key May 2020 service changes DCTA riders should keep in mind to plan their essential travel in advance:

Route 5 & 8 that are not served by Route 6 or 7

University of North Texas Campus Shuttles

The University of North Texas (UNT) campus shuttles will transition to a summer schedule. Students can visit UNT's Transportation website and RideDCTA.net for more information.

A-train Station On-Demand Service Connection

For more efficient service, DCTA will only offer on-demand bus service connections from the Downtown Denton Transit Center (DDTC) and Hebron station in Lewisville starting Monday, May 11.
