About Us Image

The St. Johns County Council on Aging working with the Board of County Commissioners under the leadership of Commissioner James Bryant, recognized the need for increased community transportation options beyond the paratransit, door-to-door service already provided. This led to the creation of the Sunshine Bus Company in 2000 to provide a deviated fixed route system, initially operating two routes on a shoestring budget. This combined system of paratransit and deviated fixed route service has continued to expand as demand and funding has become available.

In order to efficiently utilize transportation funding that the St. Johns County Council on Aging provides, the county-wide deviated fixed route bus system – The Sunshine Bus Company – was introduced in order to provide public transportation to a wide range of known origins/destinations necessary for everyday living.
