About the Transportation Program

Ark-Tex Council of Governments Rural Transit District (TRAX) provides low-cost transportation for residents of Bowie, Cass, Delta, Franklin, Hopkins, Lamar, Morris, Red River and Titus counties from their homes or other designated pick up points to meet transportation needs. This rural transportation network does not provide intercity transportation within Nash, Texarkana, or Wake Village.

Ark-Tex Council of Governments has a TRAX program to serve you in its non-urban areas. TRAX is funded through the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA).

Use TRAX for all your transportation needs:

Beauty Shop • Grocery Shopping • Bill Paying • Doctor Appointments • To and From Work • Banking

Charges may be determined by phone the TRAX service provider for your county. To schedule a trip, please call the service provider at least 24 hours before your trip. This allows the vehicles to be scheduled and coordinated for maximum utilization and allows for special needs passengers. TRAX provides accommodations for the special needs of passengers and has ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) accessible vehicles. Wheel chair lifts are available upon request.

Cancellation Policy

TRAX Transportation has established an administrative process to suspend service to passengers who establish a pattern or practice of missing scheduled trips. This policy applies to all passengers. A late cancellation occurs when a passenger cancels a trip less than 24 hours before the scheduled trip. A no-show trip occurs when the vehicle arrives at a pick-up location and the passenger does not board the vehicle within 10 minutes. If you cancel a trip either by phone or upon arrival of the driver at destination with less than 24 hour notice, you will be charged $2.00 and no-shows will be charged $2.00. Passengers are responsible for cancelling trips they no longer need. Trips can be cancelled by calling your local dispatch office. For further details, click here.
