DCTA to Launch Service in Highland Village

The Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA), Lewisville, TX, will launch two pilot services--Connect Shuttle and Community On-Demand--in the city of Highland Village on April 4 to provide additional travel options in the city and improved connections to other DCTA services.

The agency conducted a comprehensive operational analysis from August 2015 through February 2016 to identify ways to maintain the strongest areas of existing service, strengthen weaker areas and fill service gaps.

“Providing smart transit solutions for Highland Village is a major priority for DCTA,” said DCTA President Jim Cline. “We’re excited to launch our new Connect Shuttle and Community On-Demand services that will provide improved mobility solutions for those traveling to and within Highland Village.”

The Connect Shuttle will operate every 30 minutes on weekdays during morning and evening peak periods. Stops include several park-and-ride locations that connect to A-train passenger rail or other buses, shopping areas and Highland Village City Hall.

Community On-Demand provides weekday service for passengers traveling within a designated zone. Passengers can schedule their trip as soon as two hours in advance or as long as as seven days in advance; subscription service is available to passengers with trips that meet specific requirements. The service is open to any rider with exact cash fare.
