Public Transit Services (PTS) is a rural transit district (RTD) authorized by Texas Transportation Code Chapter 458 in 1985 and receives state funding for rural transit services. PTS is responsible for serving Palo Pinto and rural Parker Counties. The Dallas–Fort Worth–Arlington urbanized area (UZA) expanded into the northeastern area of Parker County. PTS, under an interlocal agreement Section 5307 grant program, with the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG), provides transit services to the UZA in Parker County.

PTS operates demand-response service throughout the service area, as well as commuter service connecting Fort Worth, Mineral Wells, and Weatherford. PTS contracts with Access2Care, SafeRide and Modivcare (formally LogistiCare Solutions) to provide non-emergency medical transportation for eligible residents in its service area. PTS is a contractor of North Central Texas Workforce Solutions, school districts, and nursing facilities to provide other human service transportation.

Greyhound operates private intercity bus service throughout the PTS service area. PTS can make connections to the service at the Fort Worth Greyhound station.

The governing body of PTS services is a board of directors, composed of citizens from Palo Pinto and Parker Counties.
