Broward County Transit Launches Late Shift Connect  

New program provides late shift employees direct rides to and from work

Broward County Transit (BCT) recognizes the need for a transportation solution that can provide residents access to/from employment opportunities outside the regular fixed-route service span. Late Shift Connect provides on-demand and direct transportation for late shift workers when regular transit services are generally not available. 

Participants can request rides to/from their places of employment and home if their work shift begins or ends between 11PM and 6AM, 5 days per week. Anyone who works the late shift in Broward County is eligible. Your contact information and employer address and contact information are required.

Transit Division Developing New Plan

to Improve Public Transportation  

PREMO service to be built from rider feedback

Transit Division is developing a Premium Mobility Plan (PREMO) in an effort to provide enhanced transit services for County residents and visitors. The plan is in the process of development and is expected to launch at the end of 2022 defining a series of premium transit projects, that are frequent, modern, convenient, attractive, safe and reliable.

A crucial element of the plan's success is input from riders to understand the community's mobility needs for future transit options. Residents and visitors alike are encouraged to take the survey to provide feedback as the plan is developed. There is also a PREMO interactive map designed to allow residents to provide direct comments and suggestions on frequently-traveled roads in the County.

The PREMO program is funded by MAP Broward, formerly known as the Penny for Transportation Surtax to enhance transportation countywide. For new and updated information about PREMO visit their dedicated website for this project.
