Background Discussion

Manatee County Area Transit (MCAT) provides origin-to-destination Handy Bus (paratransit) transportation service to individuals who are eligible under the state Transportation Disadvantaged (TD) Program and as a requirement of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). As the recipient of state and federal grant funding targeted for provision of the door-to-door services described, Manatee County is charged with administering and operating those services consistent with state and federal requirements. To inform the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners on the status of the MCAT Handy Bus services, Public Works staff is prepared to review current Handy Bus service levels, staffing, and the potential impact of the proposed paratransit fare modifications.
