Texas' DCTA ridership up 17% in 2012

Posted on October 26, 2012

Texas-based Denton County Transportation Authority’s (DCTA) Fiscal Year 2012 ridership numbers hit 2,976,271 passengers, which is a 17% increase over Fiscal Year 2011.

In 2011, DCTA carried approximately 2.5 million passengers, system-wide, which was only a 4% increase over 2010. The full implementation of the A-train, improved bus connectivity, and the addition of midday and expanded service on Friday and Saturday nights contributed to the 17% increase in 2012.

The A-train carried 411,389 passengers in its first full year of implementation. In fiscal year 2011, the service was only in operation for five months and carried 207,427. With implementation of midday service and extended Friday and Saturday night service this past August, DCTA expects to see additional increases in A-train ridership for FY 2013.

In January, DCTA will implement significant improvements to the fixed-route bus services in Denton and Lewisville. These changes will provide more frequent and expanded services and improved connections with the A-train.
