The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has unanimously approved $608,000 in funding for the continuation of paratransit shuttle service for the fiscal year 2008-09 for eligible patrons in areas of the Fourth Supervisorial District under county jurisdiction, including the unincorporated Marina del Rey area.

“I am pleased to be able to secure the funds for this service,” said Supervisor Don Knabe.

“Many of our transit-dependent residents utilize public transportation and these shuttle services are a vital component of their livelihood,” he added.

The county will provide funding for the shuttle service 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-dependent patrons, Knabe said.
