Brevard County, FL – Space Coast Area Transit announced a new Ride with Jim quarterly transit event, the first of which takes place in Titusville on August 30, 2017. Ride with Jim provides the general public and transit advocates an opportunity to share coffee & conversation with those who help shape Brevard County’s Transit System.

Co-sponsored by Bagel 13, the morning event begins with a bus picking up registered riders at a select bus stop and driving them to a local Bagel 13 restaurant for a chat over coffee and a bagel with Interim Assistant County Manager, Jim Liesenfelt. “Our transit system impacts the lives of many individuals in our community,” stated Jim Liesenfelt. “Ride with Jim is a way for us to build stronger relationships and hear ideas from riders in a casual and comfortable environment,” he said.

 Marcia Gaedcke, President of the Titusville Chamber of Commerce, was the first North Brevard resident to register. I’m looking forward to the Ride with Jim event; what a great way to connect with the key decision makers in our local transit system! Building relationships and maintaining open lines of communication are important factors in Brevard County’s success as we continue to grow; improving connectivity and diversity of transportation options are a big part of our future,” Gaedcke stated.

Ride with Jim will take place on a quarterly basis throughout Brevard.  In addition to the Titusville event, an event in Cocoa Beach is confirmed for November 1, 2017.  Additional dates and locations in 2018 will be announced.  There is no cost for this event to those who wish to participate, although seating is limited.  Interested guests must pre-register online at or call 321-635-7815 ext. 201 for assistance.
