Background

In September 2015, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) awarded a Service Development grant to the County/Community Transit to provide the HANDS clinic with a shuttle service. The service was provided for a nine month duration and produced low ridership statistics. Subsequent to analysis of the performance measure of the shuttle service, transit staff developed a cost effective solution - Direct Connect. In lieu of continuing the shuttle service, Direct Connect was developed to bridge the gaps with transportation services for employment, education and non-emergency healthcare. The County Transit Division is administering this program which utilizes third party transportation providers (taxi-cabs and LYFT.) According, the original sub grant agreement requires modifications.  The overall project budget has not changed.
