Trax Service Update
Some people were concerned when they had trouble calling for TRAX bus service beginning Thursday. The service continues to operate as it has but it is under new ownership and consequently has a new phone number. The new number is 903 691-5837. NETO ceased to run TRAX service Thursday and they have been replaced by the Ark-Tex Council of Governments. COG Executive Director Chris Brown said the COG already operated the service in Cass, Morris and Bowie counties and has now added Hopkins, Delta, Lamar, Titus, Red River and Franklin counties. Brown said the COG also operates the T-line bus service in Texarkana. No one is commenting on the reason for NETO to cease operation of TRAX buses. In the local TRAX office located in the County Intermodal Fire Station, employee Yvette Dial was busy Friday taking calls. Nothing has changed with the service except their phone number, again it’s 903 691-5837.
