MCAT provides essential transportation services to older adults (60+) and people with disabilities through a reservation-based service. MCAT also provides community-based transportation through fixed route shuttles.

Types of Services:
Demand Response/Reservation – MCAT provides transportation, for a $3.00 per trip (one way) fee, to seniors 60+ and disabled residents of Middlesex County.  The general purpose of the program is to make intermittent transportation available and accessible so that residents may obtain the necessities of life, with priority given to non-emergency medical services.  Registration and reservations are required.   Click here to download the Ride Guide.

Community Shuttle – The MCAT shuttle program is a modified fixed route service which operates on a fixed schedule without a reservation.  The six routes offer a 30 to 60 minute frequency of service, Monday thru Saturday, are wheelchair accessible and offer connections to NJ Transit bus and rail services.  There is a suggested fare of $1.00 for the general public and $.50 for persons over 60 and persons with a disability of any age.
