SAINT LOUIS, MO – With the goals of improving service quality, increasing efficiency and effectiveness, and growing transit ridership, MTM Transit recently partnered with the Martin County Board of County Commissioners to operate the County’s transit system. Through its MARTY fixed route system and MARTY Access Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) paratransit service, the County serves a ridership of 102,000 bus passengers and nearly 4,000 ADA paratransit passengers every year. As the County’s new on-road service provider, MTM Transit operates both components of the MARTY system, working in collaboration with the County to deliver high quality transit services to passengers in the Treasure Coast region.
MTM Transit’s operations in Martin County went live on October 1, adding to our existing Florida programs in Sumter County and Sarasota. Additionally, our affiliate MTM previously provided non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) functions in the County as the region’s Community Transportation Coordinator (CTC), giving our team vast expertise of local and state-specific transportation options and regulations. Our local team of 32 management staff, drivers, dispatchers, and other support personnel ensure Martin County’s residents and visitors have access to timely, safe, and reliable transportation within the community.
