The City of Amarillo serves as an urban transit district (UTD) for the Amarillo urbanized area (UZA) under Texas Transportation Code Chapter 458 and therefore receives state funding. Amarillo City Transit (ACT) is a public transit provider in the UTD, providing local bus service, flexible transit service, and the ADA paratransit service within the city limits west of Lakeside Drive. The earliest ACT service began in 1966. The current service area crosses Potter and Randall Counties, covering 95.2 percent of the population and 80.1 percent of the land area of the Amarillo UZA according to the U.S. Census 2010. The rural parts of both counties are served by the rural transit district Panhandle Community Services.
ACT is administrated by the City of Amarillo Transit Department and is governed by the mayor and four other members of the Amarillo City Council. Currently, ACT staff operates the two types of transit services in-house.
ACT also provides contract services to the Area Agency on Aging and the Panhandle Independent Living Center.
