Demand Response Service

South East Area Transit provides curb-to-curb Demand Response services to those individuals in Muskingum, Guernsey, and Noble Counties. Transportation Services are provided Monday through Friday between 4 am and 6 pm. SEAT uses a range of vehicle options, such as SEAT buses, Contracted Agency Vehicles, and Private Vendors in their personal cars.

All of SEAT-approved drivers, including all agency and private vendors, maintain a high standard of background checks, drug and alcohol testing, and specialized training for transportation of passengers based off of Federal Administration and Ohio Department of Transportation standards.

SEAT drivers are to provide safe transportation for you. No SEAT driver may act as a personal care attendant or enter a passenger’s home.
