Denton

In addition to providing bus service on campus, Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) provides an A-Train rail service that connects to Dallas County rail transit.
 
Students may use DCTA buses that serve campus and the City of Denton by showing their UNT student ID. Other transit options, including the A-train, require payment. DCTA offers a discount program to UNT students, faculty and staff.

Dallas

Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) provides public transportation via buses, rail service, trolleys and more. These services have connection points to Denton and Fort Worth transit options.
The A-Train from Denton connects to DART’s green line, which then connects to DART’s red line, blue line and orange line (that goes to DFW Airport).
