Collin County Transit expands to Prosper

Collin County Transit, a partnership between the City of McKinney, the McKinney Urban Transit District (MUTD) and the Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA), has expanded its service area to include the Town of Prosper.

Collin County Transit is a debit card-based taxi voucher program that operates Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Residents can book trips 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Wheelchair-accessible vehicles are available upon request. Irving Holdings, DCTA’s contractor, provides the taxis, the drivers, and issues the debit cards. Collin County Transit provides efficient transit options for participating MUTD cities including McKinney, Lowry Crossing, Melissa, Princeton, Celina and Prosper.

Residents who are 65 years or older, disabled or low-income and live in one of the participating cities can apply for Collin County Transit online or by email, fax, phone or mail. Residents must provide a completed application, signed terms and conditions and copies of all required documentation. For customers whose mobility device cannot be accommodated through the taxi voucher program, DCTA will directly provide demand-response service.
