Texoma Area Paratransit System, Inc. (TAPS) is a political subdivision of Texas authorized by Texas Transportation Code Chapter 458 and therefore receives state funds for transit services. TAPS serves as a rural transit district (RTD) for six counties in north Texas, including rural Grayson County and all of Clay, Cooke, Fannin, Montague, and Wise Counties. In addition, TAPS serves as an urban transit district (UTD) for the Sherman urbanized area (UZA) in Grayson County.
The earliest TAPS service began in 1986. Currently, across the six-county region, TAPS provides curb-to-curb demand-response service for the general public. The service is branded as Get-a-Ride and is currently provided in partnership with Transdev.
Greyhound Lines, Inc. operates private intercity bus services connecting Cooke County with Denton County and the Dallas–Fort Worth metropolitan area. Amtrak runs an intercity train station in Gainesville, which is also located in Cooke County. TAPS can provide connections to these intercity services.
TAPS is governed by a nine-member board of directors. The six counties, the City of Bonham, the City of Sherman, and the City of Denison each assigns a representative to form the board.
