The Transit Needs Assessment and Planning Study for Collin County is evaluating unserved transit demands and service options for Collin County.

This study will identify needs for public transportation and create a menu of transit options that could be implemented in the next three to five years. The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) has contracted with NelsonNygaard Associates, a firm that specializes in public transportation planning, to lead the study effort for Collin County.

The public is invited to take part in upcoming meetings that will seek input about public transportation needs in Collin County. These meetings will be held on Oct. 30 and Oct. 31 in three Collin County cities. Each meeting is scheduled for one hour.

TUESDAY, OCT. 30:

  • Frisco meeting -- 2 to 3 p.m. at the Frisco Public Library, Vivian Stark McCallum Room, 6101 Frisco Square Blvd., Frisco, TX 75034
  • McKinney meeting -- 5 to 6 p.m. at the McKinney Performing Arts Center, Gallery Room, 111 N. Tennessee, McKinney, TX 75069 (Use the Tennessee Ramp entrance.)

WEDNESDAY, OCT. 31:

  • Plano meeting -- 10 to 11 a.m. at the Plano Environmental Education Center, Meeting Room, 4116 W. Plano Pkwy., Plano, TX 75093  (DART Route 350 serves this location.)

The purpose of the Public Transit Input Meetings is to share information about the study, present preliminary findings, and to hear from members of the public about transportation needs and priorities, as well as the vision for public transportation in Collin County.  

Representatives from NCTCOG and NelsonNygaard will be present to address comments and answer questions. Visit www.accesscollin.org for more information about the project or to submit questions and comments to the project team at any time.
