Public input welcome for proposed bus service changes for Alliance and Denton

The Fort Worth Transportation Authority (FWTA) invites public involvement and comment regarding proposed bus service changes in Fort Worth to include new service to Alliance and Denton.

FWTA, in cooperation with the Denton County Transportation Authority, is proposing to provide bus service from the Intermodal Transportation Center in downtown Fort Worth to the University of North Texas in Denton on weekdays. An additional stop would be made at FWTA’s North Park-n-Ride at 10157 North Freeway where up to 200 parking spaces are available for commuters. Buses would operate between about 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. with trips departing every 90 minutes.

Anyone who wants to provide input can do so in one of four ways:

Email Tboard@fwta.org

Write to FWTA, 801 Cherry Street, Suite 850, Fort Worth, Texas 76102, to the attention of Detra Whitmore.
