Updated DCTA University Pass Program

UPDATE: Check out our New University Pass Program Structure

On Thursday, August 1, we officially updated our University Pass Program fare structure that now aligns with our existing reduced fare discount. The University Pass Program provides an affordable and convenient commute alternative for students, faculty and staff who are affiliated with local colleges and universities.

There will no longer be a difference in fare pricing for university students vs. faculty and staff. University of North Texas (UNT), Texas Woman’s University (TWU) and North Central Texas College (NCTC) students, faculty and looking to travel locally and regionally can purchase a DCTA University Pass for discounted transit and to avoid the hassles of driving and sitting in traffic. 

Our University Pass program and the required documents needed will mostly remain the same and pass sales will be handled through our website and at the Downtown Denton Transit Center (DDTC).
