After ending an agreement with the North Texas Mobility Corporation earlier this year, the Denton County Transportation Authority’s board of directors could vote to dissolve it at an upcoming meeting.

What’s happening?

The June 27 board meeting agenda includes an item that could dissolve the NTMC later this year. The action is slated for consideration after the DCTA absorbed all 51 bus operators who were previously hired through the corporation, according to the agenda. Bus operators are slated to begin employment at the DCTA on July 22.

The corporation was created by the DCTA in 2019 so operators could drive buses for the agency while being represented by the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1338 chapter.

Resignation of key leaders at the corporation caused a delay in collective bargaining negotiations between the corporation and the union. The delay ultimately prevented the corporation from raising wages and hiring new bus operators.

If approved by the board, the corporation could be dissolved as soon as Aug. 9, according to the board agenda.

Also on the agenda
  • Consider appointment of Vice Chair Cesar Molina to represent the DCTA on the Regional Transportation Council. This action would also appoint board member Dan Jaworski as an alternate for the RTC.
  • Consider a new agreement with Dallas Area Rapid Transit for the GoPass mobile ticketing and trip-planning platform.
  • Discuss and consider terminating a member city transit-oriented development study.
