NCTCOG Opens Online Input Opportunity

Feb. 12, 2024 (Arlington, TEXAS) – The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) is opening an online public input opportunity beginning today to give residents the chance to provide feedback on transportation plans and projects. North Texans can review and comment on information about Transit Strategic Partnerships, Safe Routes to School Update and Proposed Modifications to the List of Funded Projects. Information will be posted online at www.publicinput.com/nctcogFeb24 through March 12.

The Transit Strategic Partnerships competitive grant program funds innovative transit projects from public agencies looking to directly implement service and those seeking partnerships with an existing transit provider. These projects will directly support services for seniors, persons with disabilities and low-income populations. Proposed projects must be in the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington and Denton-Lewisville Urbanized areas. An update on projects from the November 2023 proposal submission cycle will be posted online for review and comment. More information on the Transit Strategic Partnerships Program can be found at www.nctcog.org/strategicpartmerships-transit.

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) maintains a comprehensive list of federal, state and locally funded transportation projects from now through 2026. To maintain an accurate project listing, this document is updated regularly and will be posted for review and comment.

NCTCOG’s Community Schools and Transportation program will post an update about Safe Routes to School activities, including related surveys. This program seeks to encourage and enable active transportation among school-aged children by promoting and supporting safer routes for students to walk and bike to school.

Resources and information about Map Your Experience, the Regional Smoking Vehicle Program (RSVP), vehicle incentive and funding opportunities, Try Parking It, and the business engagement program will also be made available.

For special accommodation due to a disability or language interpretation, or to request printed copies of the information, contact Jackie Castillo at 817-695-9255 or jcastillo@nctcog.org. Reasonable accommodation will be made.
