The Gulf Coast Center (GCC) is a political subdivision of Texas authorized by Texas Transportation Code Chapter 458 and therefore receives state funds for transit services. GCC serves as a rural transit district (RTD) for rural areas of Brazoria and mainland Galveston Counties and serves as an urban transit district (UTD) for the Lake Jackson–Angleton and Texas City urbanized areas (UZAs).

GCC, through its transportation program Connect Transit, operates demand-response service in rural Brazoria and mainland Galveston Counties; the fixed-route service Southern Brazoria County Transit and corresponding ADA complementary paratransit service within the city limits of Lake Jackson, Angleton, Freeport, and Clute. Connect Transit also provides the fixed-route service Mainland Transit and ADA paratransit service within the city limits of Bacliff, Dickinson, La Marque, San Leon, and Texas City.

Under an interlocal agreement with GCC, Harris County Transit RIDES provides taxi service to seniors and people with disabilities in Pearland and League City. In addition, Connect Transit and Island Transit jointly deliver park-and-ride commuter service (known as Island Connect) for riders to travel among Galveston Island, Texas City, and League City.

Valley Transit Company, Inc. operates private intercity bus service in GCC’s service area. GCC can provide connections to the service.

GCC is governed by an eight-member board of trustees. The Galveston County Commissioners Court appoints four members and the Brazoria County Commissioners Court appoints the other four members.
