Transit Services

How to Get Around in Collin County

Participants of the Collin County Transit Program will receive a reloadable debit card. For every $1 that the participant spends on taxi service out-of-pocket, we will match three-to-one. For example, if you load $5 onto the card, we will match an additional $15 for a total of $20 that can be used for taxi service to go anywhere within Collin County.
