    The Denton County Transportation Authority is exploring the possibility of expanding its service area and running a commuter bus route from Lewisville to McKinney.

    On Wednesday, DCTA representatives met with officials from several cities along the route, including The Colony, Plano, Frisco and McKinney, to gauge their interest level.

    The proposal — designated Route 70 — would include several stops along Texas 121/Sam Rayburn Tollway.

    “Interest is growing regionally for innovative transit solutions,” noted Adrienne Hamilton, a DCTA spokesperson. “The forums DCTA hosted [Wednesday] served as a launch pad effort to discuss transit needs of today and the future, including the agency’s proposed Route 70 service with stops in the cities along the corridor.”

    A recent study suggests that a man's beard contains more germs than a dog's fur. All 18 men's beards studied by researchers at Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinic had higher levels of bacteria in them, compared to only 23 out of 30 dogs. Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.

    According to Hamilton it could take up to two years before Route 70 becomes a reality.
