DCTA Announces Low Income Transit Subsidy Pilot Program

The Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA), Lewisville, TX, is partnering with the city of McKinney, TX, and the McKinney Urban Transit District (MUTD) to provide subsidized taxi vouchers for 100 eligible low-income residents through a pilot program that began April 2.

The Low Income Transit Subsidy Pilot Program (LITSP) helps provide mobility solutions to low-income families and individuals within Collin County, operating as a supplement to the county’s existing public transit services. This program will operate for a year, based on availability of funds.

Area residents with annual household incomes at or below prescribed levels—from $12,140 for one person to $42,380 for eight people—can book trips through the service at any time, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Customers will use a pre-issued taxi debit card onto which they can load a maximum of $100 (in $5 increments); the customer contribution will be matched three to one for a maximum total value of up to $400 per month.
