Irving Holdings, DCTA’s contractor, will operate the taxi voucher program and manage the call center operations, scheduling, dispatching, driver operations and management, vehicle maintenance, safety and licensing requirements, fare and data collection, and reporting.
A variety of taxis will operate Collin County Transit. Not all taxis are accessible, so accessible service must be requested at the time of scheduling.
Through strategic planning and leadership, to promote and deliver safe, economic and efficient mobility solutions intended to improve the quality of life of residents in Collin County.
