The City of Port Arthur serves as an urban transit district (UTD) for the Port Arthur urbanized area (UZA) under Texas Transportation Code Chapter 458 and therefore receives state funding. Port Arthur Transit (PAT) is a public transit provider in the UTD, providing fixed-route bus service, flexible transit service, ADA paratransit service, and demand-response service within the city limits of Port Arthur. The earliest PAT service began in 1978. The Beaumont UZA, bordering the Port Arthur UZA in Jefferson County, is served by the other public transit provider, Beaumont Municipal Transit. The rural parts of Jefferson and Orange Counties are served by a rural transit district, the South East Texas Regional Planning Commission (SETRPC).
PAT is administrated by the City of Port Arthur and governed by the city council.
