The Central Texas Rural Transit District (CTRTD) is a rural transit district authorized by Texas Transportation Code Chapter 458 in 1998 and therefore receives state funding for rural transit services. City and Rural Rides (CARR), CTRTD’s public transit program, serves rural areas of Taylor County and all of Brown, Callahan, Coleman, Comanche, Eastland, Erath, Nolan, Runnels, Shackelford, and Stephens Counties. The Abilene urbanized area falls entirely into Taylor County and is served by CityLink, which the City of Abilene operates.

CARR operates demand response curb-to curb service for the general public. Door-to-door service is available upon advance request. In addition, CARR delivers non-emergency medical transportation service and other transportation under contracts with the Texas Department of Health and Human Services, Modivcare, SafeRide, Access2Care, Disability in Action, Howard Payne University, Center for Life Resources, Tarleton State University, Erath County Senior Citizens, and Erath County Community Bridges (United Way). CARR can provide connections to the services.

The administrative and operations center of CARR are located in Coleman and Early. The governing body of CARR is an 11-member board of directors. Each member (either the county judge or a designated representative) represents one of the 11 counties in CARR’s service area.
