Senior Citizens and Disabled Residents Transportation Assistance Program - Grant Application for Fiscal Year 2018
Our goal is to provide the maximum possible number of trips for our transportation dependent senior and permanently disabled residents of Monmouth County within available resources.
We do this through a combination of in-house service referred to as SCAT and through contracts with private vendors to provide “shared ride” taxi service. Services are funded through a combination of Title 3, Older Americans Act, Casino Revenue, Section 5311, county funds and fares and payments in lieu of fares from various organizations. For service funded by section 5311, County and Casino revenue, service is provided on a first come first served basis. We do try to make special accommodations for life sustaining medical needs such as kidney dialysis.
We aggressively pursue new funding sources in our continual aim in providing more and better service to the residents of Monmouth County. We are committed to the concept that through combining all transportation resources, a community transportation system result that provides the greatest benefit to the most number of people.
