Our Mission


The mission of the FDOT Transit Office is to "identify, support, advance and manage cost effective, efficient and safe transportation systems and alternatives to maximize the passenger carrying capacity of surface transportation facilities."


The FDOT Transit Office consists of three sections (Grants Administration; Transit Operations; Transit Planning) each of which has specific areas of responsibility.

Areas of Responsibility


Grants Administration
The Transit Office administers Federal and State transit grants, monitors compliance with transit regulations, and provides planning and technical assistance to Florida's transit agencies and communities.

Transit Operations and Safety
The Transit Office reviews and implements safety programs, provides technical assistance in the design and procurement of buses for non-profit and governmental entities, and training programs for mechanics, fleet supervisors and operational transit staff.

Transit Planning
The Transit Office provides guidelines, handbooks, documents, planning software, and networking information for transit professionals.
