Access North Texas Key

Collin County

The purpose of Access North Texas is to build partnerships and better coordinate the delivery of transportation services throughout the region.  This can only be accomplished by hearing from you.  These discussions will allow us to focus our efforts on coordinating service and increasing efficiencies in public and human service transportation, therefore allowing us to better serve older adults, people with disabilities, low-income individuals and other groups with transportation challenges.


Recently, the restructuring of a major transportation provider, TAPS, that previously served Collin County, led to a disruption in service.  This prompted community members, transit agencies and local governments to discuss how to address this challenge.  To date, the solution is still being considered.  As we summarize the needs of today, we will gather and document insights, suggestions and solutions to address the need. 


To summarize the public transportation needs of this community we will request input from advocates, public transportation providers, human service agencies, aging and workforce partners, and involved community members.  We welcome you to join us at future events throughout the 16-county region over the next year.  Information about transportation needs and gaps in service as well as strategies that leverage resources and build on coordination efforts already underway will be incorporated into the Access North Texas planning document.


More information will be posted on this web page as it becomes available.
