GoZone Van

DCTA Board Approves GoZone On-Demand Rideshare Service 

On Thursday, July 22, our board of directors approved for us to move forward with the launch of GoZone, an on-demand rideshare service, powered by Via, that riders will be able to utilize for trips within, and sometimes between, designated zones in Denton County.

The on-demand service will utilize a mobile app where passengers can book their trips in real time. A fleet of dedicated vans will be used to pick up and drop off riders at virtual stops within the zones. 

GoZone will provide safe, convenient, accessible, and affordable rides with a limited wait time. In addition, it will cover areas currently served by fixed route and on-demand zones. In some cases, GoZone will extend beyond the agency’s current service structure.
