Access North Texas Key

Access North Texas is the regional public transportation coordination plan for the 16-county North Central Texas region. Stakeholders, including transit and human service providers, local governments and the public, collaborated to identify transportation challenges faced by older adults, individuals with disabilities and low-income individuals.

The plan includes prioritized strategies that will guide the region over the next four years as partners work together to make the most of existing public transit services, increase the efficiency of services and expand services.  The plan will help regional public transportation providers and human service transportation providers balance limited funding opportunities and facilitate transit improvements.

Access North Texas will be updated beginning in the summer of 2016.  Meetings will be held, data collected and community members contacted so that we can once again summarize the transportation challenges and identify resources to make improvements. The most recent Access North Texas was approved by the Regional Transportation Council on September 12, 2013 and endorsed by the Executive Board of the North Central Texas Council of Governments on October 24, 2013.
