Transportation changes related to COVID-19
Sarasota County Area Transit (SCAT) has suspended fares for all bus riders, including door to door transit. The buses are now operating on their Saturday schedule on Monday through Saturday with Sunday service remaining the same.
Manatee County Area Transit (MCAT) is offering free fixed route transit and Handy Bus service.
The special includes MCAT Route 99 buses that travel into Sarasota County.
With free fare, passengers can get on and off buses and trolleys using the rear door, creating more social distancing by eliminating the need for passengers to board at the front door to access the fare box, next to the driver.
Please check with MCAT for any updates or changes.
LeeTran has waived all fares effective Monday, March 23.
