GoZone Launched

The Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) launched its new GoZone on-demand rideshare service on Tuesday.

Riders will be able to utilize GoZone for trips within two dedicated zones – Denton and Lewisville/Highland Village. GoZone vans will be used to pick up and drop off riders at virtual stops within the zones. Passengers can get their first four rides free until Thursday, Oct. 7.

Starting Tuesday, Aug. 31, passengers were able to download the DCTA GoZone mobile app to book their trips in real time. Users who do not have a smart phone can now call DCTA customer service at (940) 243-0077 to create an account and book a trip. Passengers also can pay with exact cash on board.

The service will operate 365 days per year 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays, 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturdays and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays and holidays.

Monday through Saturdays, rides will need to start and end within the same zone. On Sundays, riders can book rides between the zones.

Denton and Lewisville Connect Routes will operate Tuesday through Dec. 6. North Texas Xpress will operate with two trips, Monday through Friday from Tuesday through Sept. 30, 2022.

GoZone replaced the Lewisville Lakeway On-Demands service, Downtown Denton Transit Center (DDTC), Evening On-Demand, Highland Village Lyft Program and Lewisville Access to Flower Mound Lyft Program.
