Pre-trial services uses tax dollars which are very much needed for education. Tax dollars should not be used to bail out those who have the means to pay.

(example: repeat offenders, violant crimes such as ASSAULT, RAPE, and many more)
Bail bonds work because they assign responsibility and financial liability to parties who can control the outcome – getting the defendant back to court while allowing them to return to work and freeing up public funds (via jails & staff). This, of course, at no cost to the public.
Pre-trial release is nothing more than another government program that costs taxpayers money. Here is a video to better inform you.
