DCTA promotion ending Jan. 14

Did anyone ever tell you there are no free rides? The Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) proved them wrongmore than once.

Well, as the old saying goes, “All good things must end.”

The DCTA’s University A-train Free Ride promotion and the free North Texas Xpress service for those along the I-35W corridor will end Jan. 14, 2019.

There’s good news, though. The agency is planning to lower its local fares permanently beginning in January. This includes a new discount program in which faculty and staff of educational institutions will qualify for a 50-percent discount on local and regional fare.

So, come on and take a half-priced ride (beginning in January)!
