The City of Allen will continue partnering with Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) to provide transportation options for seniors and residents with disabilities.

The Collin County Rides Program is a taxi subsidy service provided by the City of Allen through a partnership with DART. Seniors age 65 and older and residents with disabilities receive $3 of taxi credits for every $1 they purchase. Participants can use the credits to travel anywhere in Collin County, for any purpose.

Allen City Council approved a three-year extension to the program during the September 10 meeting. Allen Community Development Corporation will cover the $13,000 average monthly cost.
