Supervisor Don Knabe today announced that the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved $683,000 in funding for the continuation of paratransit shuttle service for eligible patrons in the unincorporated areas of the Fourth District for Fiscal Year 20011-2012.
The program will include the following paratransit shuttle services: La Rambla, Marina del Rey, Rancho Los Amigos, Teen Mother, and the Whittier Islands.
“I am pleased to be able to secure the funds for this service,” said Supervisor Knabe. “Many of our transit dependent residents utilize public transportation and these shuttle services are a vital component of their livelihood.”
The County will provide funding through the Fourth District’s Proposition A Local Return Transit Program. The financing continues the successful shuttle service for eligible patrons of the unincorporated areas of the Fourth District, improving mobility for transit dependant patrons.
