The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has approved $708,000 in funding for the continuation of paratransit shuttle service for eligible patrons in the unincorporated areas of the county, including Marina del Rey.

Among the other areas served by paratransit shuttle service are

La Rambla, Rancho Los Amigos, and the Whittier Islands.

“I am pleased to be able to secure the funds for this service,” said Supervisor Don Knabe, who represents Marina del Rey in the Fourth District. “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 for the 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, improving mobility for transit dependant patrons, Knabe said.
