Post Date:11/29/2018 7:25 PM

Sarasota County Area Transit (SCAT) is hosting four public workshops in December to gather input on proposed service changes in the cities of North Port, Venice, Sarasota and the Town of Longboat Key.

Changes are being considered to the following routes and services: 

  • Route 13 serving Venice and South Venice. 
  • Route 23 serving Venice Island Loop. 
  • Route 18 serving downtown Sarasota and Longboat Key Bay Isles. 
  • Elimination of route 100X with stops at the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport, downtown Sarasota and North Port. 
  • Modifying of Saturday services times to Sunday services times.
