Highland Village voted to become a member of the Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) in September 2003. It is currently served with Commuter Express coach service to Denton and downtown Dallas. DCTA initiated bus service in Highland Village in January 2008.

In March 2020, DCTA replaced the Highland Village Connect Shuttle with a Lyft discount program to increase overall network efficiency.[11] DCTA's on-demand GoZone service,[12] which launched September 2021 in partnership with Via Transportation, ultimately replaced the Lyft program to provide transportation in Highland Village.
