TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE MAYOR OR DESIGNEE TO SUBMIT WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS A PLAN TO IMPLEMENT A DISTANCE-BASED FARE STRUCTURE FOR SPECIAL TRANSPORTATION SERVICES

BODY
WHEREAS, Special Transportation Services (STS) is a share-ride public transportation service of Miami-Dade County in compliance with the complementary paratransit service provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA); and
WHEREAS, the County currently charges a base fare of $2.50 per one-way trip for STS regardless of how far a person travels within the County; and
WHEREAS, subject to ADA limitations, a distance-based fare structure for STS should be explored to better match the cost of STS,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board directs the Mayor or designee to submit to the Board within thirty (30) days of the effective date of this resolution a plan to implement a distance-based fare structure for Special Transportation Services.
