City of McKinney proposes public transportation plan across Collin County


City Council approved a resolution proposing the development of a comprehensive public transportation plan for Collin County at the Sept. 19 City Council meeting.

The city will seek funding from the Metropolitan Transportation Organization, the Texas Department of Transportation, the Federal Transit Administration and private companies to pay for the development of the plan, according to city documents.

The plan must include transportation within cities, across city limit lines and local transit agency boundaries, according to the resolution.

The cities of Allen, Frisco and Plano have either adopted a similar resolution or will soon adopt one, City Manager Paul Grimes said at the meeting.
