PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION FOR GROVELAND AND BIG OAK FLAT


Southside Community Connections (SCC) in Groveland, CA, working with Tuolumne County Transit Council has been awarded a substantial 5310 Cal Grant from the State of California.

GROVELAND, Calif., May 18, 2020 – This grant allows SCC to design and implement a Public Transportation program for Groveland and Big Oak Flat residents. We plan to operate regularly scheduled transportation services to Sonora and Modesto, beginning by the end of this year.

Funding will be restricted to specific transportation needs included in the grant, and will be used to:

  • Acquire a wheelchair-accessible van which will provide medical and non-medical

      transportation services to Sonora, Modesto, and possibly other locations. Non-medical     destinations will include shopping, religious services, cultural events, activities at The Little         House in Groveland, and other community functions

  • Develop routes and schedules tailored to meet the needs of riders in our rural community
  • Pay maintenance fees, insurance, and other costs associated with the vehicle.
  • Hire and train program administrators and drivers.

“We are so grateful for the generous support of the Tuolumne County Transit County and the State of California” says Syd Robenseifner, Co-President of the SCC Board of Directors.  “Public Transportation will have a direct, positive impact on local families.  We look forward to enhancing our community with this new program”.
