In an effort to mitigate the potential of COVID-19 spreading from passengers to transit operators, other personnel, and other passengers, CTS is temporarily suspending transportation in Ellis County and will operate in Navarro County “fare free” beginning, Monday, April 6, 2020. This is being implemented for safety system wide. It is estimated that this will result in a loss of monthly fare box revenues of approximately $5K during operating circumstances. This is a temporary measure to practice social distancing in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Please consult our “InfoBank” page for furter detail on our COVID-19 / Pandemic responses.
Community Transit Service transportation services were developed to provide safe and efficient transportation to the general public and to persons with special needs as specified by Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and as defined by contracts into which Community Transit Service may enter from time to time.
Our buses have low floors so your first step on board can be easier, equipped with a wheelchair lift or ramp. Our operators are trained to assist people with disabilities in boarding and securing their wheelchairs on the bus. By federal law, our operators announce major transfer points, intersections and destination points along each route.
It is the goal of Community Transit Service to implement and maintain an efficient and effective transportation system to serve the general public.
The specific objectives of Community Transit Service transportation services are:
To provide transportation designed to accommodate the general public and persons with disabilities, and
To maintain a trained staff for the operation and control of the system.
It is the policy of Community Transit Service that no otherwise qualified person shall, solely by reason of his or her disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise e subject to discrimination under any program or activity undertaken by Community Transit Service. Community Transit Service serves person without regard to race, sex, religion, or national origin.
All publicized services are made in accessible formats (i.e., large print, TDD, Braille, audio tape) “upon request”
Community Transit Services (CTS) is funded by Texas Department of Transportation and the Federal Transportation and provides scheduled transportation services in Ellis and Navarro counties. Rider must call twenty-four (24) hours in advance for arrangements.
