 SCAT Plus Eligibility

 
Eligibility for paratransit services is based upon the nature of the individual's disability and the origin and destination of the requested trip.
 
Individuals interested in using the SCAT Plus Service as an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) rider must be screened for eligibility and certified.
 
Fill out the SCAT Plus Application and mail it to:
Sarasota County Area Transit
Attention: Mobility Coordinator
5303 Pinkney Ave.
Sarasota, Florida 34233-2421

or FAX to: 941-861-1007
This certification requires documentation from a medical professional; in some cases, an in-person assessment may be required to determine if the disability actually prevents the rider from using the SCAT fixed bus route system.
  • Eligible passengers may schedule a trip on SCAT Plus by calling.
    • If a companion or personal care attendant is required, please indicate so in your trip scheduling. All personal care attendants must be approved at the time of application approval.
  • Personal care attendants ride at no charge, while companions must pay the $2.50 fare along with the SCAT Plus passenger.
  • Visitors who are eligible for ADA status in other cities and have submitted documentation to this office, can use the SCAT Plus service during their visit to Sarasota County, for up to 21 days of trips.
  • ADA eligibility is a transit decision. If you are denied ADA eligibility and wish to appeal the decision, you may contact our office at 941-861-1234 to request an appeal.
