PRE-REGISTRATION AND EVACUATION TO SPECIAL NEEDS SHELTERS

Space Coast Area Transit provides transportation for Brevard County Emergency Management. In order to deliver the highest quality emergency service possible, residents with special needs MUST pre-register with the Emergency Management Office at 321-637-6670. Applicants may also contact their home health agency, hospice agency, medical supply company, or other caregiver for assistance with registering. Once registered, annual updates are required to keep information up-to-date. 

As part of the Special Needs Registration, applicants are requested to share information about their pets. Due to health concerns, pets are NOT allowed in special needs shelters. In the event of an emergency or evacuation, pre-registered applicants will be contacted to reverify their shelter needs and pet information. An approximate pickup time will be provided, both for Space Coast Area Transit to pick-up the resident and for Brevard County Animal Services to pick-up the pet. Special needs residents should have their pet, disaster kit and personal items ready to go at the designated pickup time. Once the emergency has passed, residents and pets will be returned to their homes. 

Transportation is free to all special needs and primary evacuation shelters. Residents will be transported if they register a request, either as part of a Special Needs Application, or if they have no other means of transportation to a shelter.

COORDINATION WITH OTHER EMERGENCY RESPONDERS 

Space Coast Area Transit acts as an emergency responder and coordinates with other emergency support functions such as public works, law enforcement, the Red Cross, School Board, and Health Department, by providing support such as transportation for crews and supplies like tarps, food and emergency equipment. 

After the “all clear” is given by the Emergency Operations Center, Space Coast Area Transit returns special needs citizens to their homes. An immediate effort to restore public transportation services begins. An inventory of facilities, equipment and employees is taken to determine the initial capacity of transit services to be implemented. 

RESTORING SERVICE AFTER THE “ALL CLEAR” IS GIVEN 

Each route is driven to monitor the status of debris, traffic light outages and other restrictions. The #1 priority is providing TD Paratransit, ADA Paratransit Service and other life sustaining transportation, such as trips to dialysis centers. Subsequently, Space Coast Area Transit works diligently to resume both Fixed Routes and Contracted Routes until mobility has been restored to all Brevard County residents.

Moving Brevard Into The Future

Bus and Trolley routes operate on a set schedule at designated stops, providing extensive coverage throughout the cities within Brevard County as well as unincorporated areas. All transit buses and trolleys are equipped with wheelchair lifts and bike racks. Surfboards are allowed inside the bus/trolley, based on space availability.
