I am a Senior that does not drive anymore and your service is so very welcoming for me. Every Driver is a courteous,professional and safe driver. I always make my appointments on time and most importantly in a safe manner. An additional plus is that I get to see our City of Akron without worrying about road hazards and other impatient drivers. My Blood Pressure thanks you also. Your phone reservation team is always patient and helpful!! Sincerely

I am so appreciative of SCAT! As a social worker, I see that transportation is a huge barrier to many clients trying to access life saving / changing services and care. SCAT has assisted my clients so much in getting where they need to be to live a healthy life.
