Our Mission

To insure the availability of efficient, cost-effective, and quality transportation services for transportation disadvantaged persons.

Our Programs

The Transportation Disadvantaged Program is a coordinated state-wide effort which groups riders together for a shared ride service. Transportation services are available in all 67 Florida counties for those who are eligible and have no access to transportation. Federal, State and Local agencies join together to provide necessary transportation to medical appointments, employment, educational and other life sustaining services. Learn more about Your Community Transportation System.

You can easily help provide transportation for children at risk, seniors, disabled and low-income residents in your community! Every time you register or renew the tag on your car, truck or boat, simply check the box on the back of the registration form and contribute $1 or more to the Transportation Disadvantaged Trust Fund, or ask your Tax Collector's Office how you can contribute to the Florida Transportation Disadvantaged Voluntary Dollar Program. 100% of all donations go to assist people in your community. It takes so little, to help, so much!

The Toll Permit Program was created in 1988 to address concerns raised regarding individuals who, due to an upper limb impairment, were unable to physically reach out to pay required tolls.

Our Governance

The Florida Legislature created the Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged in 1989. The Commission sets policies and provides direction to its staff in the areas of quality assurance and program evaluation, technical assistance and training, review of policies and procedures, contract management and financial accountability. The Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged administers the Transportation Disadvantaged Trust Fund and implements all provisions in Chapter 427.013 F.S.
