Upcoming SCAT service changes

The Sarasota County Area Transit Authority (SCAT) is making significant changes to its bus system in November, 2009. Below is a brief summary of the changes. For a full detailed look, click here.

The most sweeping change will be the expansion of Route 16 to cover more areas of Englewood and South Venice. In response, Routes 21, 24, and 25 will all be eliminated. A new route, Route 26, will be introduced to cover other areas of Venice, not covered by the improved Route 16. In response to that change, Route 19 will be eliminated and Route 9 will have its frequency increased to 60 minutes from 120 minutes. Additionally, Sunday service will be added to Route 9.

Route 99 (the Manatee/Sarasota Connector) will have OWL service added, with buses making their final runs around 10:00pm, instead of the current 6:45pm runs. Also, the morning short trip from SRQ airport at 5:30am will be eliminated.

Combined OWL routes 17/13 and 14/11 will have Sunday service frequency changes/additions.

Other routes will recieve scheduling adjustments to improve efficiency.
