Transportation includes fixed routes, demand service, and rides for ADA riders needing additional mobility assistance.

Trips can be booked up to 30 days in advance.

“The new website for Panhandle Rides is going to be a helpful tool that we can use at Amarillo College to help our students access information on the public transportation system in the Panhandle. The website is user-friendly and easy to navigate,” said Jordan Herrera, Director of Social Services, AC.

Alex Guerrero, local government services director at Panhandle Regional Planning Commission, says the new website will allow better connectivity.

“The new website allows the connectivity from the individual to the provider to a more fast reliable way. This allows a little bit of that gap of connectivity,” said Guerrero.

The rides are for many different reasons including those in rural areas who need rides for medical services.

“Its highly used for medical reasons. for appointments, procedures, that are likely to be in Amarillo, for those reaching out who live in the Panhandle region kind of in our more rural areas,” Guerrero said.
