Our Mission

Collier Area Paratransit (CAP) is committed to providing safe, accessible, and courteous transportation services to the community members.


Collier County Public Transit & Neighborhood Enhancement (PTNE) Division administers the Collier Area Paratransit system for Collier County. The County is the designated Community Transportation Coordinator (CTC) under Florida Statute F.S. 427. As the CTC, the PTNE Division administers the coordination of transportation services for the disabled and economically disadvantaged. Funding for these transportation services comes from a variety of sources including the State Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged, Americans with Disabilities Act Federal grant, local county funding and other State grants. Medicaid transportation is not provided by the County Paratransit system.

 

The majority of trips are provided to passengers traveling to medical appointments, nutrition sites, and work. Use of the Collier Area Paratransit system requires pre-certification. To learn more about the eligibility requirements of the system click here. Individuals who are interested in using the paratransit service must apply through a written application that can be found below.

Local Coordinating Board

 The Local Coordinating Board (LCB) has established by the Board of County Commissioners to identify local transportation service needs and provide information, advice, and direction on the coordination of services to be provided to the transportation disadvantaged. The LCB also reviews the amount and quality of service being provided to the County's transportation disadvantaged population. The Collier LCB meets on a quarterly basis and holds at least one public hearing a year. For information on the next LCB Committee Meeting visit the Collier Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) website here.
