Regional Vanpool Program
The North Central Texas Regional Vanpool Program is operated by two transit agencies, Trinity Metro (formerly known as The T), and Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA). The vans used in the program are available at a low monthly cost to riders and can seat as many as 15 people. In March 2022, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) discontinued participation in the Regional Vanpool Program. All previous DART vanpools and boundaries are now managed by Trinity Metro and DCTA.
The Trinity Metro Vanpool service area encompasses the counties of Dallas, Ellis, Erath, Hood, Johnson, Navarro, Palo Pinto, Parker, Somervell, Tarrant, and Wise. Trinity Metro vanpools originating in Wise County may travel throughout DFW excluding Denton County. DCTA Vanpool service area encompasses the counties of Collin, Denton, Hunt, Kaufman, Rockwall, and Wise. DCTA vanpools originating in Wise County may travel to Denton County as the final destination only.
