We’re Implementing Service Changes on May 11 due to COVID-19

Service changes are coming soon. Effective Monday, May 11, we will implement service updates that will affect Denton Connect Bus routes, University of North Texas (UNT) Campus Shuttles, Lewisville Lakeway On-Demand and Access due to effects from the coronavirus (COVID-19) health emergency. Below are key May 2020 service changes DCTA riders should keep in mind to plan their essential travel in advance:

Denton Connect Bus

Denton Connect Routes 5 and 8 will be temporarily suspended to reduce route duplications during COVID-19. Passengers who previously utilized Denton Connect Route 5 can ride Denton Connect Route 6 to get to their destination. Passengers who previously utilized Denton Connect Route 8 can ride Denton Connect Route 7 to get to their destination.

University of North Texas Campus Shuttles

(UNT) campus shuttles will transition to a summer schedule. The following routes will be in service: Bernard Street, Colorado Express, Centre Place, Discovery Park, Mean Green and North Texan.

A-train Station On-Demand Service Connection

For more efficient service, DCTA will only offer on-demand bus service connections from the Downtown Denton Transit Center (DDTC) and Hebron station. The on-demand service operates similarly to DCTA’s Lewisville Lakeway On-Demand.

Lewisville Lakeway On-Demand

Service hours for Lewisville Lakeway On-Demand have been updated to the following:

  • Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 9:40 p.m.
  • Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.

In addition to service hour changes, DCTA is rebranding its microtransit mobile app. Effective Monday, May 11, riders will need to download the new DCTA On-Demand app that will replace the current Spare Rider app. However, the process to book a trip will remain the same.
