The Northeast Transportation Service (NETS), under Texas Transportation Code Chapter 458, serves as an urban transit district for the part of the Dallas–Fort Worth–Arlington (DFWA) urbanized area (UZA) within seven cities in northeast Tarrant County including Bedford, Euless, Grapevine, Haltom City, Hurst, Keller, and North Richland Hills; NETS therefore receives state funding. NETS provides demand-response service only for people who are elderly and people with disabilities; thus, NETS is a limited-eligibility transit provider.

The service area of NETS is the municipal boundaries. Eligible riders can travel on NETS within a member city, between member cities, and to and from the Bell, CentrePort, and Richland Hills Stations for the Trinity Railway Express. The vast majority of the NETS service area falls into Tarrant County and is urbanized. The remaining parts of the DFWA UZA are served by two regional transportation authorities (Dallas Area Rapid Transit [DART] and Trinity Metro), two other limited-eligibility transit agencies (the City of Arlington and Grand Prairie), and the City of Mesquite. Public transportation options are extensive in the region, including intercity bus services, Amtrak passenger rail service, and the rail and bus services of DART and Trinity Metro.

The governing body of NETS is the board of directors of the NETS Urban Transit District, which is comprised of the city manager of each member city. NETS has a partnership with Trinity Metro through an interlocal agreement. Trinity Metro then contracts with Catholic Charities Fort Worth to operate the NETS service and maintain the NETS vehicles.
