The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has unanimously approved $664,000 in funding for the continuation of paratransit shuttle service for eligible patrons in the unincorporated areas of the Fourth District, including Marina del Rey, for fiscal year 2009-2010.
In addition to Marina del Rey, the program includes the following paratransit shuttle services: La Rambla, Rancho Los Amigos, Teen Mother, and the Whittier Islands.
“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.”
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, a Knabe spokesman said.
