People who live, work or go to school in Denton County are invited to share their opinions about the future of public transportation during the week of September 20th.
The Denton County Transportation Authority will host community meetings throughout the county to discuss the future of public transportation and to present results of the first round of data collected during their long-range planning effort.
Over the last four months, DCTA officials convened staff, stakeholders, and consultants as it kicked off its Five-Year Service Plan and Long Range Transit Plan to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing the transit authority and to gather feedback regarding the transportation needs of residents and businesses in Denton County.
The first round of information about the plan — survey results, ridership data and key findings — will be presented to the public at a series of community meetings around the county:
Monday, September 20th – 6:30 p.m.
Denton City Hall Council Chambers
215 East McKinney Street
Tuesday, September 21st – 11:30 a.m.
Highland Village City Hall Police Training Room
1000 Highland Village Road
Tuesday, September 21st – 6:30 p.m.
Denton County Transportation Authority Board Room
1660 South Stemmons Fwy, Suite 250
Wednesday, September 22nd – 6:30 p.m.
Little Elm Town Council Chambers
100 West Eldorado Parkway
Thursday, September 23rd – 6:30 p.m.
Byron Nelson High School Auditorium
2775 Bobcat Blvd.
Additional public meetings will be scheduled this winter to share recommendations and get input from the public, DCTA officials said.
The plan, once finalized, will define future transit service corridors, identify how to improve transit connections within Denton County, recommend opportunities to expand services, and provide a road map to guide DCTA’s investment decisions in the coming decades.
