Background Discussion

The Florida Department of Transporation (FDOT) desires to enter into an agreement with the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners to make improvements at bus stops on the State Highway System(SHS) in the MCAT service area. The FDOT funding will help MCAT achieve greater compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) implementing regulations.

The project for ADA-related accessibility improvements at bus stops on the State Highway System (SHS) is a three-year, cost-reimbusement, activity. Per Department Procedure Number 725-030-005-I, Public Transit Service Development Program.

The local match is $59,480. The non-federal share may be cash, or in- kind. Manatee County Public Works will provide in-kind services  including salaries and benefits for engineering and design services for ADA accessability improvements at MCAT bus stops. These in-kind services will offset non-federal cash contributions.
