The City of Longview serves as an urban transit district (UTD) for the Longview urbanized area (UZA) under Texas Transportation Code Chapter 458 and therefore receives state funding. Longview Transit is a public transit provider in the UTD, providing fixed-route bus service and ADA paratransit service throughout Longview. The service area crosses Gregg and Harrison Counties, covering 81 percent of the population and 63.2 percent of the land area of the Longview UZA according to the U.S. Census 2010. Rural areas of Gregg County, Harrison County, and adjacent counties are served by the East Texas Council of Governments.
Greyhound intercity bus and Amtrak passenger rail pass through the city, providing regional transit options for Longview citizens. Both Greyhound and Amtrak stations are only feet away from Longview Transit’s transfer center.
Longview Transit is administrated by the City of Longview and is governed by the Longview City Council. The daily operation of Longview Transit is managed in-house.
