Pinellas County, FL – In 2006, due to the work of FAST, Brian Smith, Director of the Metropolitan Planning Organization, agreed to create a new one-number system for senior transportation. This new system, unveiled in March 2006, works with the Area Agency for Aging and allows seniors to speak directly to a trained professional who can help them with their transportation needs. This system benefits over 20,500 seniors in Pinellas County who cannot drive.
