All riders must apply and be certified by the cities in which they reside. Each city has their own set of requirements. All other residents of Johnson County, that live outside the city limits of Iowa City, Coralville, North Liberty and University Heights are automatically eligible to ride SEATS.

Riders are encouraged to seek mid-day appointments.

The SEATS department is a service for those not able to use the fixed route service where it is offered, and open to the general public further then 3/4 of a mile from a fixed route service. The SEATS vehicles regularly transport people to doctor's appointments, grocery stores, and other destinations providing its clients with a necessary and reassuring degree of freedom.

Cost of Service
The basic cost for a one-way ride is $2.00. Riders must pay when boarding the vehicle. The correct fare must be paid in cash, punch cards or any combination equal to the fare. Drivers are NOT able to provide change. Riders who do not have the proper fare will not be transported.

You can purchase punch cards from the SEATS driver or the SEATS office, which will allow you pay for ten punches for $20.00, so each punch is worth one trip or $2.00. Please keep in mind that Johnson County SEATS is not able to refund any punch card purchases.
