St. Johns County is the recipient of public transportation funding from federal, state, and local sources. As a recipient of these funds, St. Johns County is responsible for maintaining compliance with Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations Chapter 53. The funding is solely for the operation of services within the County. The County contracts with the St. Johns County Council on Aging for the day-to-day operation of the public transportation system. As the recipient of the funding, St. Johns County is obligated to ensure that all funds are expended in accordance with state and federal regulations. While this responsibility is passed through to the COA by contract, the county is responsible for oversight and monitoring the COA.
The St. Johns County Sunshine Bus Company provides two distinct modes; a Fixed-Route system, with an established schedule that operates within the St. Augustine Urbanized Area, and a Demand Response door-to-door service, or paratransit service that operates by reservation and is available to those qualified as Transportation Disadvantaged, as well as those who qualify for Medicaid non-emergency transportation.
Bus Stop Shelter Installations In April 2013, St. Johns County installed new bus shelters for riders of the fixed route system, known as the Sunshine Bus, operated by the St Johns County Council on Aging.
