of Public Transportation in Springfield, Ohio
Following World War II, Springfield’s transit system succumbed to the nationwide decline of the transit industry. The City of Springfield, recognizing the value of transit as a public service, obtained a grant in 1966 from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to purchase 12 diesel buses. These buses were nominally leased to the Springfield Transit Company, Inc. Revenues continued to decline, however, forcing private transit operations in Springfield to close on June 6,1969.
Springfield’s public transit flourishes by combining the best of public ownership and private management. Springfield City Area Transit (SCAT) is a function of city government, with facilities and rolling stock owned by the city and the managerial and operation expertise provided under contract by First Transit.
Springfield City Area Transit serves the residents and visitors of Springfield, Ohio Monday-Friday 6:40am-5:40pm. SCAT offers 11 fixed routes, ADA paratransit services, and our demand-response service, Dial-A-Ride. Our services offer a convenient, safe and affordable means of transportation.
