STS Program Overview
Special Transportation Service (STS) is MDT's complementary paratransit service. Established in 1976 to meet the special transportation needs of disabled Miami-Dade County citizens, STS is available to anyone deemed eligible. Privately contracted sedans, vans and vans equipped with lifts provide door-to-door service for eligible customers. Service is offered with no restrictions on trip purpose.
Those visiting our community can also take advantage of STS service by simply providing proof of disability and evidence (such as a Driver’s License or photo ID card) that they reside in another jurisdiction. Please call 786-469-5000 or 305-630-5300 or email us at email@example.com before your trip to South Florida to ensure eligibility to ride STS.
Apply for STS
MDT will provide van/sedan shared-ride to persons determined to be "ADA Paratransit Eligible" for those trips that cannot be made using the county fixed route transportation service.
