Winter Operations Update - Tuesday 8:30AM

Denton County Transportation Authority

Connect Bus, A-train, GoZone, Access, UNT Campus Shuttle, NTXpress

This morning, Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) has decided to further delay the Tuesday start of Connect Bus service in Denton until 1:00PM, due to very hazardous and icy road conditions. As previously announced, Tuesday service for GoZone on-demand rideshare service will start at 10:00 AM, but riders are advised to expect longer wait times and travel times due to the weather. DCTA began operating other services including the A-train commuter rail and Access paratransit at their normal schedules at 5:00 AM today.

DCTA will continue to monitor travel conditions and make service adjustments as necessary. As of Tuesday morning, here is a full summary of expected service for Tuesday, January 31:

  • Connect Bus operations in Denton will have a delayed start at 1:00 PM
  • A-train commuter rail service started operating its normal schedule at 5:00 AM
  • GoZone on-demand rideshare services will have a 10:00 AM delayed start, but given the road conditions, customers should prepare for longer than normal trip times
  • Access Paratransit services will operate on a normal schedule, but given the road conditions, customers should prepare for longer than normal trip times
  • UNT Campus Shuttle bus service will not operate on Tuesday, as a result of the University of North Texas canceling classes for the day
  • North Texas Xpress bus service from Denton to Alliance Fort Worth will not operate on Tuesday

All riders should anticipate potential delays throughout the multiple-day winter weather event and dress appropriately. DCTA is also advising customers and employees to take precautions while walking to bus stops and shelters, in parking lots and on A-train platforms.

Future updates regarding service delays or interruptions will be published on the DCTA news site, RideDCTA.net/MediaCenter and through DCTA Rider Alert notifications, as well as our Facebook (RideDCTA) and Twitter (@RideDCTA) pages.
