TxDOT Hosts Listening Session for Senior Transit Needs

PARIS – The Texas Department of Transportation will host one of several statewide public listening sessions here at 1 p.m. Dec. 13 at the City of Paris Council Chambers, 150 1st Street SE, to gather input regarding the transit needs of seniors and individuals with disabilities living in rural Texas.

These sessions also provide an opportunity to learn about the Federal Transit Administration’s Program 5310, which provides funding for transportation options for seniors and individuals with disabilities when current transportation service is unavailable, insufficient or inappropriate.

All interested persons are encouraged to attend. Those who cannot participate in person can join online; please go to and click on “get involved.” The public can also provide input by taking an online survey online and clicking on “enhanced mobility.”

The Dec. 13 session in Paris is designed to gather input from residents of Delta, Fannin, Franklin, Grayson, Hopkins, Hunt, Lamar, Rains and Red River counties. A list of TxDOT public meetings statewide is available online at, search for “hearings and meetings”
