The City of Abilene serves as an urban transit district (UTD) for the Abilene urbanized area (UZA) under Texas Transportation Code Chapter 458 and therefore receives state funding. Transit Management of Abilene, Inc., known as CityLink, is a public transit provider in the UTD, providing fixed-route local bus service, flexible transit service, ADA paratransit service, and demand-response service within the city limits of Abilene. The service area crosses Jones and Taylor Counties, covering 98.1 percent of the population and 94.5 percent of the land area of the Abilene UZA according to the U.S. Census 2010. The rural areas of Jones County are served by the Aspermont Small Business Development Center, Inc. (ASBDC), and the rural areas of Taylor County are served by the Central Texas Rural Transit District (CTRTD). CityLink partners with ASBDC’s Double Mountain Coach and CTRTD’s City and Rural Rides to deliver public transportation for people in the region.
CityLink is administrated by the City of Abilene Transportation Services Department and is governed by the seven-member Abilene City Council. Daily operations of CityLink are managed and operated by contract with First Transit’s sub-corporation Transit Management of Abilene, Inc.
