Suffolk County Accessible Transportation (SCAT) Policies

1. No Show & Late Cancellations

Paratransit riders who repeatedly fail to appear for their prearranged rides can have a detrimental effect on operational efficiency, cost, and the quality of the service for other riders.

Suffolk County Accessible Transportation (SCAT) has established an administrative process to suspend, for a reasonable period of time, paratransit service to customers who establish a pattern or practice of missing scheduled trips, except where the trips are missed for reasons that are not under their control.
