Panhandle Transportation

Transportation is a major barrier for people in the Panhandle. In a 2015 needs assessment of the Panhandle region conducted by Panhandle Community Services, transportation ranked as one of the top five major needs in the area.  

Panhandle Transit provides transportation to non-urban areas across the Texas Panhandle for access to employment, education, shopping, recreation, health care, and social services. The curb-to-curb, demand/response service allows us to pick-up and/or drop-off passengers based on their needs.


Curb-to-curb demand-response services are available to passengers who request pick-ups and/or drop-offs. If you need a ride, please call 800-800-6162 at least 24 hours in advance. Based upon availability, our service center will schedule your ride. 


Clients must be able to enter and/or exit their destination without assistance from the driver, though the driver will assist passengers in loading and unloading the van (excluding packages). PCS drivers have been trained in passenger assistance and emergency procedures to ensure that all passengers are safe, comfortable, and secure.
