Really big. Healthcare makes up 15 percent of the entire North Texas economy and is growing by the minute, adding 5,400 related jobs to the region’s economy annually. With seemingly unlimited options in healthcare providers spread out all across the region, people facing mobility challenges can struggle at times to geographically connect the dots. Thanks to innovative thinking by DART (Dallas Area Regional Transit), MUTD (McKinney Urban Transit District), DCTA (Denton County Transportation 28 WWW.NTC-DFW.ORG SUMMER 2018 Authority), and several municipalities and transportation partners, qualifying residents in Collin County no longer face transportation barriers. Since its launch in 2016, Collin County Rides has served people 65 years of age or older and/or people living with a disability in participating DART cities of Allen, Fairview and Wylie. This subsidized taxi service provides an efficient transit option for a fraction of the usual cost. Participants can store $5 to $50 on a DART debit card and receive a taxi subsidy based on how much they contribute toward their own transportation. Riders who have regularly scheduled medical appointments may also be eligible for subscription service, which eliminates the need to call and schedule each individual trip in advance. • 17 Convenient DFW Locations • Traditional MRI and Open MRI Available • Same Day Appointments • Advanced MRI Imaging • Evening and Saturday Appointments ú SWI Earlier this year, MUTD and DCTA announced a similar subsidized taxi voucher program called Collin County Transit.
