TxDOT to host virtual workshops

    TxDOT is hosting a series of virtual workshops to learn more about the service needs of seniors and individuals with disabilities.

    Access to quality transit is vital to the lives of many people across Texas, including in northeast Texas, the Atlanta District area. For many, transit is their only connection to healthcare, jobs, family members or even groceries.

    “At least this way I have freedom,” rural transit rider Donnie Gillie said. “When you’re car-less and don’t drive and just at home, that really means a lot. You can’t say enough about it how much it means to get to go and do some things.”

    TxDOT is looking to understand how transit can best serve and meet the needs of seniors and individuals with disabilities. That’s why TxDOT is hosting a series of workshops in December and January to hear from communities, organizations and riders.
