The Denton County Transportation Authority will host a series of open house meetings to share major agency projects and initiatives, including regional fare changes, August 2018 service changes, access policies and procedures, the EPA Brownfields assessments grant, A-train Rail Trail and job access and connectivity opportunities.
The Lewisville meeting will be 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. April 16 in the lobby of City Hall, 151 W. Church Street, in conjunction with the city council meeting.
The come-and-go meetings will give the public an opportunity to speak with individual DCTA staff members about the presented topics. DCTA has numerous projects happening in the next couple of months and needs rider feedback to enhance service and projects for the many communities the agency serves.
The discussion will cover a proposed 20 percent fare increase for regional fares based on the region’s decision to increase fares as well as proposed service changes in August 2018, which include Lewisville going from two routes to four routes and an on-demand zone and new routes to provide additional connection between Denton and Alliance.
For those who are unable to attend, DCTA has a digital presentation that provides details on all the topics that will be covered at the public meetings, which will be available April 13 through May 4. An online feedback form will also be available and individual comments are highly encouraged.
Everyone is welcome to attend the open house meetings. Persons with hearing or sight interpretive service needs are asked to contact DCTA at least five business days in advance of the meeting at 972-221-4600 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org so that DCTA can accommodate requests.
