South East Area Transit System (SEATS) is Robeson County’s Community Transportation Program.  SEATS provides human service agency and rural general public transportation for Robeson County residents.  The North Carolina Department of Transportation Public Transportation Division provides operating and capital assistance for the program.

SEATS has established routes throughout Robeson County operating Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for the general public and agency-sponsored passengers.  SEATS provides scheduled routes for out-of-county medical trips to Duke Hospital, UNC-Chapel Hill Hospitals, and  Veterans Hospital in Durham and Fayetteville. SEATS’ vehicles are accessible to passengers with disabilities.

To request service, call SEATS’ office at (910) 618-5679 by 12:00 noon the day before the service is needed.  Reservations are required on most routes, therefore, requests for transportation are considered on first come – first serve basis. 

Rural general public riders are required to pay a fare of  $2.00 each time they board a transit vehicle. Passengers  whose transportation is sponsored by an agency are not charged a fare.  Fare boxes are located on transit vehicles.  Transit passes may be purchased at the transit office.
