Bike to Work Day 2019

The Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) is joining the League of American Bicyclists and many organizations across the U.S. in celebrating Bike to Work Day by providing free rides all day to riders who bring their bikes on board select DCTA services on Friday, May 17. Bike to Work Day is an annual, nation-wide event that encourages people to try biking as a part of their commute during National Bike Month.

 

DCTA Services You Can Ride Free

Passengers who bring their bikes on board can ride the following DCTA services for free:

  • A-train Commuter Rail
  • Connect Bus (Denton and Lewisville)
  • Highland Village Connect Shuttle
  • Denton Enterprise Airport & Lewisville Lakeway On-Demand

Passengers who plan to transfer to the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) will need to purchase or have valid fare for that portion of their trip.

 

Simple DCTA Bike Tips

Riders can visit our website for tips on how to safely bring a bike on our busses or train. Most DCTA buses are equipped with a bike rack located on the exterior front of the bus.
