Transportation services provided through The Arc Tampa Bay’s Transportation Program are available to individuals who are presently receiving services from one of The Arc Tampa Bay’s numerous programs. The Arc Tampa Bay serves people with intellectual and developmental disabilities from the Tampa Bay area. Transportation is an adjunct service and the agency’s transportation program operates primarily in the northern and central areas of Pinellas County, Florida.
We provide a range of trip purposes that include: medical, nutrition, shopping, social service, educational, employment, social and recreational. Currently, we use a variety of vehicles to provide passenger services. Our fleet includes vans, modified vans, cars, trucks and freightliners (warehouse). Eleven of our vehicles are equipped for wheelchair service. Our fleet of vehicles is maintained by a variety of local garages equipped to perform required inspections and needed repairs. We presently have 35 vehicles for passenger transport. Funding obtained through the Federal Transit Authority with local oversight by the Florida Department of Transportation has been instrumental in ensuring that our fleet stays up-to-date and that vehicles reaching their “useful life” can be retired from the fleet.
