Schedule:   Project Schedule

Project Status: The Aurora Road Corridor Study has been underway since Spring 2017. There have been three public meetings/workshops held throughout the study process to gather input and feedback on the development of a preferred alternative. The study team is working on reviewing all comments received and will be conducting final evaluations on which alternative(s) meet the goals of the study and the needs of the citizens and users of the corridor.

A final presentation is currently scheduled to be given at the TPO’s Technical and Citizens Advisory Committee meeting on Monday, May 7, 2018, and at the TPO Governing Board meeting on Thursday, May 10. Aurora Road is maintained by Brevard County, and the final decision on which improvements will be implemented is the responsibility of the County.

Design and construction phases are currently not funded. Improvements may be implemented in phases and if right-of-way is determined to be required during design, this phase will also need to be funded.

The final recommendations and preferred improvements will be posted here upon completion of the study over the next several months.

Brevard County Residents Ride for Free on January 15, 2015

January 8, 2015

Brevard County can start the year right, and reThink how to get to work and school, during the 2nd Annual Resolve to reThink Your Commute day. On Thursday, January 15, 2015, Space Coast Area Transit is offering free rides; simply visit RideSCAT.com to print a free bus ticket.

This year’s event features a new partner: Eastern Florida State College. Students of the school may ride the bus for free thanks to a funding agreement between the college and Space Coast Area Transit. The “free ride” partnership ceremony is Thursday, January 15th at 10:45 am in front of the King Center for the Performing Arts in Melbourne. Speakers will include Jim Liesenfelt, Transit Services Director for Space Coast Area Transit; Richard Laird, M.B.A., Vice President, Financial & Technical Services at Eastern Florida State College; Sandra Handfield, M.A., Provost for the Eastern Florida State College Melbourne campus; and Kathy Meehan, City of Melbourne Mayor.

Afternoon events at each Eastern Florida State College campus will focus on coordinating carpools and vanpools, as well as registering commuters for reThink’s Emergency Ride Home program.

The Resolve to reThink Your Commute campaign is led by reThink, a program of the Florida Department of Transportation. reThink aims to decrease traffic congestion, improve air quality, conserve natural resources, and save people money. To achieve these goals, reThink promotes transportation options, including carpooling/vanpooling, riding transit, biking, walking, and telecommuting.

For more information about the event, please visit www.reThinkYourCommute.com/Resolve/ or call 1-866-610-RIDE (7433).

Space Coast Area Transit

Contact: Sarah Kraum or call Space Coast Area Transit at 321-633-1878

Space Coast Area Transit, a department of the Brevard County Board of County Commissioners, offers fixed route bus and Paratransit services, commuter and non-profit agency vanpools, and need-based volunteer transportation support to assist frail and elderly residents in maintaining independence.

Space Coast Area Transit drives Brevard’s economy by efficiently and inexpensively connecting workers with their jobs, links students with colleges and universities, and transports the elderly and transportation disadvantaged to needed services. Buses operate on set schedules at designated stops. Additionally, a QR code on bus stop signs link passengers to a mobile website, where the Google Maps Trip Planner details which routes to take. Weekend and Saturday service is available on most routes.

Extensive coverage is provided throughout the cities within Brevard County as well as unincorporated areas. Major shopping centers, government centers, social service agencies, area colleges, universities and hospitals are just some of the locations served by Space Coast Area Transit. All transit buses are wheelchair lift equipped. They also accommodate bikes at no additional charge. Surfboards are allowed inside the bus, based on space availability.

Space Coast Area Transit also has one of the largest commuter and non-profit agency vanpool programs in all of Florida. State-of-the-art vans seat 7-15 passengers and are convenient, reliable and affordable. An on-line savings calculator details the savings from riding the bus or vanpooling versus commuting by car.

The Volunteers In Motion program offers trained volunteer assistance to Brevard County residents that are too frail or elderly to ride a bus; these committed volunteers enable the program to grow and continue to be a huge success story!
