Space Coast Area Transit is the municipal bus system serving the Brevard County, Florida area. Besides providing routine transportation, low cost service is available to disabled and disadvantaged citizens.[3]

Space Coast Area Transit was formed in 1985 as a replacement for two competing bus services in Brevard County; Brevard Transportation Authority and Consolidated Agencies Transportation System, both of which refused to cooperate with each other, and often got into territorial and service disputes.[4]

The Space Coast Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) determines policy.

The system budgeted $6.9 million for operations in 2010. It collected $2.1 million in passenger fees, The rest comes from federal and state grants, and contributions from two cities.[5]
