Transit Planning and Implementation Studies

 

This picture is of people, our community, coming together with the help of transit planning and implementation studies

Elected officials and stakeholders from parts of Collin, Dallas, and Tarrant Counties are seeking assistance with developing a comprehensive and coordinated transit planning and implementation plan.  In support of this initiative, the Regional Transportation Council (RTC) approved $2 million in August 2018 for North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) to perform an independent transit needs assessment and strategic implementation plan for each of the three study areas, focusing on areas not included in existing transit authority service areas.  Similar transit planning and implementation projects will also be conducted for Denton County and for non-DART member cities in Southeast Dallas, Kaufman, and Rockwall Counties.

Additional feedback from stakeholders representing each study area will continue to guide the planning and implementation of this project.
