St. Lucie County Transit Launches Innovative On-Demand Ride Share Service for Residents in Southwestern Port St. Lucie
The Treasure Coast Connector is launching a new, on-demand micro-transit service for residents in the southwestern portion of Port St. Lucie, called Treasure Coast Connector – On Demand.
Similar to ride-hailing services, Treasure Coast Connector – On Demand uses a smartphone app for riders to schedule customized curb-to-curb trips in the Gatlin Road area of Port St. Lucie. A small, neighborhood-friendly van will pick-up riders and drop them off wherever they wish to travel within the defined pilot program areas of Port St. Lucie, including businesses and offices in Tradition and near Interstate 95 on Gatlin Boulevard. Areas being served include: Becker Ridge; Paar Estates; Sawgrass Lakes; Crane Landin; Woodland Trails; Tulip Park; Rosser Reserve; Gatlin Pines; Whispering Pines; Newport Isles and Tradition. Along the way, the shuttle may pick-up other passengers who also request a ride. The service conveniently accommodates people with disabilities.
This free, pilot program will operate within the southwestern portion of Port St. Lucie for up to one year beginning Monday, Dec. 9. If the program goes well, the service will expand and become a part of St. Lucie County Transit and the Treasure Coast Connector’s transit options. Hours of operation for Treasure Coast Connector – On Demand will be Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. To use this new ride share program, passengers should download the free TransLoc app to their smartphone and then request a ride.

Unified Planning Work Program
The St. Lucie Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) is developing its Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) for Fiscal Year 2020/21 – Fiscal Year 2021/22. The UPWP is the two-year program of transportation planning activities supported by State and Federal funds undertaken by the TPO. The TPO encourages you to review the draft UPWP and to share feedback to ensure that the UPWP reflects the needs of the public to the greatest extent possible.
The TPO has posted the draft UPWP for public review for 14 days. The public has until April 1, 2020 to provide comments on the UPWP before it is reviewed for adoption by the TPO Board. As part of the approval process, the TPO will revise the draft UPWP, as necessary, to address the comments and summarize all comments submitted during the comment period and the revisions made to the UPWP based on the comments.
