Gulf Coast Transit District (GCTD) is a political subdivision of Texas authorized by Texas Transportation Code Chapter 458 and therefore receives state funds for transit services. GCTD serves as a rural transit district (RTD) for rural areas of Brazoria and Galveston Counties and serves as an urban transit district (UTD) for the Lake Jackson–Angleton and Texas City – La Marque urbanized areas (UZAs). GCTD operates demand-response service in rural Brazoria and Galveston Counties; the fixed-route service in Southern Brazoria County and corresponding ADA complementary paratransit service within the city limits of Lake Jackson, Angleton, Freeport, and Clute. GCTD also provides the fixed-route service and ADA paratransit service within the city limits of Bacliff, Dickinson, La Marque, San Leon, and Texas City.

Under an interlocal agreement with GCTD, Harris County Transit RIDES provides taxi service to seniors and people with disabilities in Pearland. Additionally, GCTD delivers park-and-ride commuter service for riders to travel among Galveston Island, Texas City, and League City. GCTD is governed by a 16-member board of directors appointed by the Galveston County Commissioners Court and the Brazoria County Commissioners Court.
