Summer camp programs are facilitated through the Medical Assistance Transportation Program and provide fixed route reimbursement, mileage reimbursement, or curb-to-curb transportation to county children to and from summer therapeutic camps. The mode you use will be determined by rabbittransit staff based on your needs. See further details within the MATP program description here. Final determination of eligibility for the MATP Program is made by rabbittransit based upon the Department of Public Welfare’s state system guidelines.
The same application process applies for how to register for the MATP Summer Camp Program. Summer Therapeutic Activities Program (STAP) staff will coordinate the trip reservations with rabbittransit.
MATP paratransit service is not taxi or limousine service. Passengers share the vehicles with others taking the same or similar trips. Space is limited and cannot be guaranteed, and service depends on demand. In rural parts of the county, service is limited and is more difficult to obtain.
While we do not have a specific age limit for children to ride the bus, you may be required to provide an escort for your child(ren). Cases will be reviewed as necessary by rabbittransit.
rabbittransit drivers or our subcontractors will provide transportation if the rider is present at the pick-up location and can exit the vehicle at the drop-off point. The Summer Therapeutic Activities Program (STAP) provider should receive the child at the program retaining any items belonging to the child (back packs, car seats, boosters, straps, etc.). It is pertinent that a parent/guardian or a responsible adult is available at the curb-to-curb location to accept the child and their belongings (back packs, car seats, boosters, straps, etc.) when being dropped off in the afternoon.
