Are you living with a disability in Suffolk County, New York and looking for accessible public transportation? The Suffolk County Accessible Transportation (SCAT) program is here to provide a safe and reliable service designed to increase mobility in the area. Established in 1994, SCAT offers curbside service to individuals with disabilities who are unable to use the regular Suffolk County Transit (SCT) public bus service. Eligibility for SCAT is determined by the guidelines set forth in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). The program also provides reduced fare benefits for people over 65 and eligible customers with disabilities.
The reduced fare is equivalent to half the one-way fare and can be used to purchase single tickets at any time, except for some periods of high demand in the morning. See the application form for a list of qualifying disabilities. By providing your email address or phone number, you agree to be contacted by New York City regarding the results of the ACCESS NYC public benefits evaluations. This will help you determine if you are eligible for additional benefits. If you have a disability that prevents you from using regular public transportation, SCAT is here to help. With its safe and reliable service, SCAT can help you get around Suffolk County and access the services you need.
