The City of Port Arthur Transit Department or PAT as it is locally known, began operating in April 1978 and has since provided service to the citizens of Port Arthur located in Jefferson County. PAT was revived from a period when it was private and ineffective. Ultimately, city Administrators applied for grant funding from the United Metropolitan Transit Authority, now known as the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to form the current transit commuter system. PAT was designed to provide quality transportation in a responsible manner consistent with its financial resources and the diverse needs of the people. PAT acts responsibly to reduce pollutants that contribute to the deterioraton of the ozone layer. Port Arthur is one of only a few small cities (under 100,000 persons) that have a transit system. The City's transit service operates five days a week beginning at 6:15am until 6:15pm; the average fare is $1.50.

Reduced fare is available to senior citizens, Medicare card holders, persons with disabilities, full-time students, and children ages five(5) through twelve (12) years of age. Proof of age or disability must be provided upon request.

Special Transit Services: PAT offers a specialized door-to-door service for elderly and handicapped persons who are unable to use the route system. Call 983-8794 for information eligibility.

Safety In The Work Place: It is the policy of the Port Arthur Transit (PAT) to provide and maintain a safe and healthy working environment for its employees and to insure safe and dependable transportation for patrons. PAT has voluntarily adopted the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) as it?s minimum safety standard. Provisions of this act shall be incorporated into every aspect of PAT?s operations. For a complete summary of the Occupational Safety and Health Act refer to U SC title 29 chapter15.
