What Is Somerset County Transportation System?


In November, 1981, SCTS began operation to access transportation funds made available by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

SCTS is operated in accordance with guidelines set by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. Services are provided by The Somerset County Commissioners and The Community Action Partnership for Somerset County/ Tableland Services, Inc. as the operating agency.

Transportation is provided to the general public on a demand response basis. Everyone must be scheduled at least (1) day in advance of desired service. Transportation services are scheduled daily prior to 2:00 pm.  The local phone number is 814-445-9628 ext 238 for the reservation agent, to speak with Lori the MATP Coordinator call 814-445-9628 ext 236, to speak with Becky the Dispatcher 814-445-9628 ext 237, and to speak with Mike the Director of Transportation 814-445-9628 ext 239. 

The system operates Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Transportation services are not available on Somerset County holidays. Our first scheduled pick up daily is 8:00 am and all pick ups must be completed by 4:00 pm. Passengers are requested to contact the office regarding potential early or late pickup and drop off times.
