Did you know that #EPASmartWay designated trucks and verified technologies help drivers squeeze more miles out of every tank, allowing them to spend less time refueling and more time working and relaxing! Be sure to thank your carrier members for their dedication and let them know these technologies can help with fuel and time efficiency. #ThankATrucker

Trail of the Month: SoPac Trail

Cooler temperatures mean it’s time to hit the trails! Head to east Dallas and you’ll be able to enjoy the Southern Pacific (AKA “SoPac”) trail, a shared-use path which spans a total distance of 4.7 miles, but is a key connector for so much more. The trail was built entirely within a former Southern Pacific rail corridor and provides ample tree coverage to keep users comfortable for walks and rides. Watch the trail video to learn how SoPac connects neighborhood schools, retail centers, parks and more. Thanks for riding along with us on this trail journey!

Trail of the Month: Trinity Trails

We’re headed west for our Trail of the Month video today! The Trinity Trails System is a network of paved and unpaved gravel paths traversing over 45 miles in Tarrant County. The trails meander along the tributaries of the Trinity River, following the Clear Fork branch extending to Benbrook in the south and along the West Fork branch from Westworth Village to downtown Fort Worth. Both rivers converge near downtown Fort Worth and continues eastward along the West Fork Trinity River into Arlington. While the length of the Trinity Trails network is impressive in and of itself, it’s also part of a larger regional vision to develop the 52-mile Fort Worth to Dallas Regional Veloweb Trail.

Trail of the Month: DCTA Rail Trail

The A-Train Rail Trail is 19 miles long and is the longest trail in Denton County. Built parallel to the A-Train commuter rail line, the Rail Trail is a viable amenity for biking, walking, running and other exercise activities with beautiful, scenic views. More than a decade in the making, the A-train Rail Trail is a product of Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) collaborating with community partners including City of Denton, TX - City Hall, City of Corinth, Texas- Government, The City of Lake Dallas, Texas and Lewisville Staff. The A-Train Rail Trail is a vital regionally-significant trail corridor providing multimodal options for future generations. https://nam12.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DK0iooUAoU7Y&data=04%7C01%7CVHenderson%40nctcog.org%7C46cbda7e5f9a4463544f08d96f13fbc9%7C2f5e7ebc22b04fbe934caabddb4e29b1%7C0%7C0%7C637662953898396996%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=9lcENbzCWdtK6zRmwetSHRQmIFsn0XNQHMra5YPoDRs%3D&reserved=0

GoCama.....NO Smart Phone =NO Discounts Regarding the new Gocarma app has anyone figured out how a driver with a toll tag but no smart phone can receive the HOV discount when applicable. Example 1) Grandmother owns a vehicle and has a toll tag but no smart phone, she takes various people shopping throughout the week, many of which do not have smart phones. 2) Driver with toll tag and occupant is on HOV phones are in purse for some reason (Low battery?) bluetooth disconnects. There has to be a manual way to make up for the flaws in this system?
