Access North Texas Key

Tarrant 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.  In the near future a kick-off meeting will be held, followed by a county-specific meeting in the spring of 2017.  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.


In 2013 we learned that between 2012 and 2020 Tarrant County’s population is expected to grow from 1.8 million to 2.1 million people.  Furthermore, popula­tion growth is anticipated in outlying suburban and rural areas where current transit service is limited or nonexistent.  To address this, strategies included:

  • Improve coordination among transportation providers that serve transit-dependent populations,
  • Coordinate ongoing efforts to establish and expand a one-call center for transportation options,
  • Addressing gaps in service, and
  • Expand service for specific groups such as veterans.  

As we summarize the public transportation needs of today, we request your specific insight.  How has the region changed?  What new challenges are before us?  Have past struggles been overcome?   


To summarize the needs of this community we 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.
