City of Alameda to Launch Alameda Paratransit Shuttle Service

On April 6, the City of Alameda Paratransit Program will launch the Alameda Paratransit Shuttle Service. The shuttle will provide Alameda’s senior and disabled residents with access to major shopping destinations and medical facilities around the city. The service is funded by Alameda County Measure B sales tax dollars.

The City says that the service will be open to Alameda seniors, 62 years and older, and residents certified to use East Bay Paratransit and operates in a west-end loop on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and an east-end loop on Wednesdays. Both loops include the Alameda Towne Centre, Park Street, Alameda Hospital, and the Mastick Senior Center as well as additional shopping or senior living destinations in accordance with their east or west loop. The shuttle will operate from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. More information is available from the Mastick Senior Center, or at

The service is funded with a share of the half-cent Measure B sales tax approved by voters in November 2000. Measure B is projected to generate $1.4 billion through the year 2022. Measure B funds are to be used to expand and improve public transportation, including BART and local bus service, improve area freeways, and extend special transit services for seniors and persons with disabilities.

In related news, the Alameda County Congestion Management Agency is asking for public input on a possible measure for the November 2 ballot that would implement a $10 Vehicle Registration Fee. According to an AC Transit brief, the proceeds from the fee would be used, similar to Measure B funds, for local transportation and public transit improvements throughout Alameda County. The fee would generate up to $11 million a year.

The public can provide their input online, by attending presentations to Alameda City Council, or through one of the following public workshops:
