SCAT: We'll take you there!

For route information, planning or assistance, call the county Contact Center at 941-861-5000.

 

 

The SCAT Bus is a Safe PlaceSafe Place

If a young person needs immediate help, you can depend on the SCAT bus with the Safe Place logo.
 
The young person needs to: let the driver know that they need help, then the driver will talk with dispatch, who will call a licensed Safe Place agency.
 
Within 30 minutes or less: a Safe Place staff member will arrive and talk with the young person. Once the staff member meets with the young person, they will then make sure the youth (and their families) receive the help and services they need.
