Access North Texas Key

Dallas 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 fall of 2016.  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 2017 we learned the following key strategies in Dallas County include:

  • Obtain service for underserved areas,
  • Improve partnerships and coordination between existing transit providers to simplify regional trips,
  • Complete and expand projects that have a no wrong door approach to accessing transit,
  • Maintain a county coordinating committee,
  • Advocate for agencies to integrate funding sources to maximize efficiency and increase available affordable public transportation,
  • Provide information about transportation providers and resources in multiple languages,
  • Identify, recruit, educate and support influential champions for public transportation, and
  • Create partnerships between transit agencies, municipalities and community organizations.
