Special Transportation for Seniors and People with Disabilities (Paratransit)

In 2000, 10 years after Congress approved the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Alameda County voters renewed the county's commitment to improve mobility for all. The reauthorized Measure B increased the percentage of net revenue for Special Transportation from 1.5 to 10.45 percent. These revenues fund operations for Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-mandated services and city-based paratransit programs. The revenues also fund a discretionary Gap Grant program which funds projects intended to reduce the differences in special transportation services available to individuals in different geographic areas of Alameda County.

Alameda CTC’s Paratransit Advisory and Planning Committee (PAPCO), an all-consumer community advisory committee, provides recommendations to the Commission for items related to Paratransit funding, including the Gap Grant program.
