General Public Transportation

The bulk of our business is non-emergency medical transportation and other contracted services (See above). JCATS strives to also provide Rural General Public (RGP) transportation to school, work, appointments, etc., at a reduced cost to riders. However, RGP funding support for this service is very restricted and because of the limited number of vehicles in our fleet, seating availability is secondary to riders served by our contracting agencies. That said, we strive to offer RGP service 6am-5pm, Monday - Friday. Please call by 12pm the business day before transportation is needed to check for availability. Additional limitations may apply.

NOTE: JCATS cannot provide taxi service and/or charter bus service. You may consider our temporary QuickRIDE services.

Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals 
with Disabilities - Section 5310

This program (49 U.S.C 5310) provides formula funding to states and designated recipients to meet the transportation needs of older adults and people with disabilities when the transportation service provided is unavailable, insufficient, or inappropriate to meeting these needs.

The program aims to improve mobility for older adults and people with disabilities by removing barriers to transportation service and expanding transportation mobility options. This program supports transportation services planned, designed, and carried out to meet the transportation needs of older adults and people with disabilities in all areas.

The goal of the Section 5310 program is to improve mobility for senior and individuals with disabilities throughout the country, by removing barriers to transportation services and expanding the transportation mobility options available. Toward this goal, FTA (Federal Transportation Authority) provides financial assistance for transportation services planned designed and carried out to meet the special transportation needs of seniors and individuals with disabilities in all areas. A senior is an individual who is 65 years of age or older and term ‘disability’ is defined in section 3(1) of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (42 U.S.C 12102).

States, local government authorities, and designated recipients are direct recipients; Eligible sub-recipients include private nonprofit organizations, states or local government authorities, and operators of public transportation. Operators of public transportation are entities that provide regular, continuing, shared-ride surface transportation services that are open to the general public or open to a segment of the general public defined by age, disability, or low-income. Operators of public transportation are eligible as sub-recipients for nontraditional Section 5310 projects.

Eligible sub-recipients should apply to the direct recipient in their area for funding. In small urban or rural areas, the direct recipient is the state department of transportation. In large urban areas the direct recipient is the designated recipient.

A federally recognized Indian tribe may apply directly to FTA for Section 5310 funds that a state, local government authority, or designated recipient has awarded to the tribe. Tribes are eligible direct recipients under the Section 5311 program.

This agency provides translation and interpreter services free of charge.

JCATS (a division of Community & Senior Services of Johnston County) is an equal opportunity employer and an equal opportunity program.
