The Aspermont Small Business Development Center, Inc. (ASBDC) is a rural transit district authorized by Texas Transportation Code Chapter 458 and therefore receives state funding for rural transit service. ASBDC, located in Aspermont, provides demand-response service for the general public in Fisher, Haskell, Jones, Kent, Knox, Stonewall, and Throckmorton Counties through its transportation program, Double Mountain Coach. Double Mountain Coach is also a subcontractor of American Medical Response, Inc., SafeRide and Modivcare, providing non-emergency medical transportation for eligible Medicaid participants in the region. In Jones County, the areas within the city limits of Abilene are served by the public transit system CityLink, operated by the City of Abilene urban transit district.
The ASBDC Board of Directors consists of 21 members from the seven counties. Each county is represented by an elected public official, a representative of the low-income population, and a representative of a private group or organization. The ASBDC executive director is responsible for the Double Mountain Coach’s overall management and daily operations.
