St. Johns County is the recipient of public transportation assistance funding from both state and federal sources. As a recipient, St. Johns County is responsible for the administration and management of that funding in providing public transportation services throughout the County which includes both fixed route and demand response services. Fixed route service provides service along designated routes at specified times. Demand response service provides door to door services for citizens who are unable to access the fixed route but qualify as transportation disadvantaged.
Transportation Planning / Concurrency
Transportation Planning efforts include immediate and long term coordination and planning to achieve a balanced transportation system (safe and efficient) for vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians, including development of the Transportation Element of the Comprehensive Plan and the Traffic Circulation Plan, as well as implementation and management of the Concurrency Management System to maintain adopted levels of service. Transportation Planning is also responsible for the review of development projects for consistency with transportation planning efforts and concurrency, and coordinates with other local, state, and regional agencies such as the North Florida TPO, Northeast Florida Regional Council, and Florida DOT on transportation issues.
