Crawford Area Transportation Authority (CATA) expands shared ride bus service

  • Date: 05/05/2021

Shared ride bus service has been expanded to low-to-moderate-income rural households in the county by the Crawford Area Transportation Authority (CATA) with Crawford County Planning Office.

Applications are being accepted on a first-come, first-served basis for the Rural Family and Workforce Transit Program (RFWTP). A brief application is required in order to qualify. Applicants will be required to self-certify their household income, but no additional documents are required to apply.

The program offers door-to-door transportation services for individuals and families who meet the following criteria:

• Under age 65;

• Low-to-moderate-income guidelines (see the application form for income limits);

• Live outside of the boundaries of the cities of Meadville and Titusville, and Vernon Township;

• Have unmet in-county, non-medical transportation needs and/or unmet out-of-county medical transportation needs; and

• Deemed ineligible for other transportation funding assistance or sponsorship.

Participants will be required to pay the reduced fare of 15 percent of transportation costs, which is based on mileage. Reduced fares range from $2 to $7 each way, based on mileage.
