The Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG) is authorized by Texas Transportation Code Chapter 458 to serve as a rural transit district and therefore receives state funding for rural transit services. AACOG provides transit services through its public transportation program, Alamo Regional Transit (ART), for the rural parts of Comal, Guadalupe, and Kendall Counties and all of Atascosa, Bandera, Frio, Gillespie, Karnes, Kerr, McMullen, Medina, and Wilson Counties. In Comal and Guadalupe Counties, Cibolo, Marion, New Braunfels, Schertz, and McQueeney wholly or partially became a part of the San Antonio UZA in the 2010 U.S. Census. ART continues providing transit service to these areas under agreements among ART, VIA Metropolitan Transit, and the cities.
ART operates demand-response service for the general public within its service area and accepts trip requests to and from Bexar County. ART accepts students who live within the two-mile radius of their schools in the cities of Boerne, Fredericksburg, Kerrville, and New Braunfels on the demand-response service. ART also operates the deviated fixed-route service Connect Seguin within the city limits of Seguin in Guadalupe County. In addition, ART provides human service transportation throughout its service area under a contract with a workforce center.
Kerrville Bus Company and Greyhound operate private intercity bus service in ART’s service area. ART’s Kerrville Bus Station can provide a connection to the intercity bus service.
AACOG governs ART with a 36-member board of directors and created the Alamo Regional Transportation Steering Committee to make strategic decisions concerning regional transportation issues.
