Transportation Resources! (Alameda County and North County)

On our Information & Assistance (I&A) line in the office, we are often asked about transportation methods for seniors and those with physical and/or mental health disabilities. Most frequently I refer callers to East Bay Paratransit, who provide public transit service for people who are unable to use regular buses or trains due to their disability. Below, we have received updated, additional transportation resources in Alameda County and North County. If you already use Paratransit and find that the services do not fit your needs, we hope you can find additional options here!
