The mission of PTS is to provide affordable, accessible and connected transportation services that allow access to employment, education, healthcare, and commerce; and to meet the social needs of the communities within Palo Pinto and Parker Counties.
Our fares are based on zones within a five-mile radius in Palo Pinto and Parker Counties. The rates start at $2.00 a trip (1/2 price for Seniors 60 years or older). Rates for destinations outside of our counties will be available at a higher base rate and are based upon availability.
A Personal Care Attendant or Assistant (PCA) may ride for no charge so long as the PCA is providing a valuable service to the client. If a PCA does not specifically perform some type of assistance for the client, that PCA will then be considered a guest and will be charged full fare.
PCA’s are required to specifically assist the customer, including the following duties at a minimum:
- Assisting the customer from his/her door to the bus and back again
- Opening doors
- Pushing wheelchairs
- Carrying packages
- Communicating with the driver (if customer is unable to do so)
Fares must be paid upon entering the vehicle with exact change, or credit card payments can be made through the PTS office. Personal checks are not accepted.
PTS has a strict “no refund” policy.
