Access North Texas Key

Hood 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 winter of 2016/2017.  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 2017 we learned the following key strategies in Hood County include:

  • Improve access to Veterans Affairs facilities in Dallas and Fort Worth,
  • Explore partnerships to increase the affordability of fares for those most in need,
  • Add capacity to existing transit service,
  • Establish consistent and effective driver recruitment and retention program,
  • Increase public awareness of available transportation services by conducting targeted marketing and travel training, and
  • Explore partnerships with local employers, cities, and other agencies to fund additional transit resources.
