Community Services, Inc. is a rural transit district authorized by Texas Transportation Code Chapter 458 and therefore receives state funding for rural transit services. Community Services provides transit service via its public transportation program, Community Transit Services (CTS).
The Dallas–Fort Worth–Arlington (DFWA) urbanized area (UZA) expanded south into Ellis County. CTS assumed responsibility to provide transit service for the DFWA UZA in Ellis County under an interlocal cooperative agreement with the North Central Texas Council of Governments. CTS, therefore, operates demand-response service for the general public that covers all of Ellis and Navarro Counties. In addition, CTS provides human service transportation according to contracts with local agencies, such as DARS/Corsicana.
Greyhound intercity bus service is available in the service area of CTS. CTS can provide connection to the service at the Waxahachie Greyhound station. Dallas Area Rapid Transit, the regional transportation authority, operates Express Bus Route 206 connecting the Glenn Heights park-and-ride lot to downtown Dallas. The Glenn Heights park-and-ride lot is approximately 1 mile from CTS’s service area.
The administrative and operations center of Community Services is located in Corsicana. The 9-member board of directors of Community Services governs CTS.
