SCAT Hosting Public Workshops Regarding Service Changes



Sarasota County Area Transit (SCAT) is hosting four public workshops in December to gather input on proposed service changes in the cities of North Port, Venice, Sarasota and the Town of Longboat Key. The proposed service changes are aimed at improving SCAT service and address budget impacts, and are not related to the request for proposal for privatizing transit operations. Changes are being considered to the following routes and services: Route 13 serving Venice and South Venice; Route 23 serving Venice Island Loop; Route 18 serving downtown Sarasota and Longboat Key Bay Isles; elimination of route 100X with stops at the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport, downtown Sarasota and North Port; modifying of Saturday services times to Sunday services times.

The community workshops will be held at the following times and locations: Tuesday, December 4, from noon to 1:30pm at the Francis T Bourne Jacaranda Public Library in Venice and from 5pm to 6:30pm at the North Port Public Library, as well as Wednesday, December 5, from 5pm to 6:30pm at Venice Community Center and Thursday, December 6, from 5pm to 6:30pm at Fire Station 3 in Sarasota.
