Access North Texas Key

Ellis 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 Ellis County include:

  • Improve local and regional access to medical appointments in Dallas County,
  • Improve transportation options for local access to job and education opportunities,
  • Explore partnerships to increase the affordability of fares for those most in need,
  • Expand transportation services to provide service for late-shift workers,
  • Explore partnerships with local employers, medical centers, cities, and other agencies to fund additional transit services,
  • Increase public awareness of available transportation services,
  • Create and maintain a coordinating committee to discuss ongoing transportation needs,
  • Explore partnerships with existing transportation providers to reduce the number of transfers for regional trips, and
  • Establish consistent and effective driver recruitment and retention program.
