Paratransit, Inc., Mobility Training Program

SACOG Salutes! Award Winner Regional Organization of the Year

Paratransit, Inc.’s Mobility Training Program supports residents with mental disabilities and seniors in accessing traditional transit service. The Mobility Training Program is a long term cost savings program by supporting residents to access fixed-route service over dial-a-ride. Originally, a pilot program, Paratransit Inc. has built the Mobility Training Program into a sustainable model for other transit agencies throughout the county. In our region, over 12 thousand residents have received training. Developing this program into a sustainable system helps our region and many other areas maximize the transit system for all users and improve quality of life for our developmentally disabled and elderly residents.
