Transportation Disadvantaged (TD) Program

Outside of finding work, transportation is the greatest obstacle for the homeless and at risk population to overcome. There is some help available if you qualify.

Pinellas County Transportation Disadvantaged (TD) Program

Through its TD Program, the Pinellas County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) provides transportation services to transportation disadvantaged persons and to eligible Medicaid recipients. The MPO contracts with Greater Pinellas Transportation Management Services (GPTMS) to take calls from program participants and schedule trips with the contracted providers.

If you qualify, GPTMS can provide monthly bus passes for as low as $1.00. Please follow the link provided for more information.
