Unmet Transit Needs

As the administrator of Transportation Development Act (TDA) funds for the region, San Joaquin Council of Governments (SJCOG) is charged with performing the Unmet Transit Needs (UTN) process, and City of Lodi GrapeLine participates in this process.

The purpose of the UTN process is to ensure that all unmet transit needs that are "reasonable to meet" are met before funds are expended for non-transit uses, such as streets and roads projects.

For information about the UTN process or to complete a survey, please go to the following website:

Access San Joaquin

New Services Effective October 1, 2018

The transit providers in San Joaquin County, including the City of Lodi, have formed a coordinated effort to provide enhanced services to transit patrons throughout the region.  This coalition is called Access San Joaquin.  The primary goal is to improve transportation services to seniors, individuals with disabilities and those residing in outlying areas of the County.  These new services will become available on October 1, 2018.  Lodi’s current transit services that you’ve come to rely on will not change, but you will now have additional options for improved mobility that extends beyond Lodi’s boundaries. 
One of the many benefits of Access San Joaquin is that information is now centralized in one location and one certification process will allow you to utilize a variety of services to increase your mobility throughout the County.  The San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD) has been authorized to provide these services for Access San Joaquin on behalf of the transit agencies, including Lodi. Below is a list of the additional services available to you through the collaboration efforts of Access San Joaquin:

  • ADA Eligibility:  No more paper applications.  The certification process is now standardized through an in-person, functional assessment.  Once ADA certified, you will have ridership privileges within each jurisdiction in the County based on their ADA fare structure.
  • Van Go!:  A mobility on demand, ADA-accessible rideshare service that provides transportation for those residing in underserved areas such as Victor, Linden, Clements and Lockeford with a free transfer to the fixed route system, 7 days per week from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm.
  • RTD Go!:  A mobility on demand, ADA-accessible rideshare service around the Van Go! service hours that provides dial-a-ride style trips for passengers in areas of the county with limited public transportation options, 7 days per week between 4:00 am – 10:00 am and 4:00 pm – 10 pm. 
  • Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP):  Mileage reimbursement program for friends, relatives or neighbors who provide transportation for ADA-certified passengers to their medical appointments.
  • FREEdom Program:   A program that allows ADA-certified passengers to ride fixed-route services for free throughout the County.
  • Discount Fare Card:  Allows seniors, persons with disabilities, and Medicare recipients to take trips on most fixed route and Dial-a-Ride services throughout the County for half-priced fares.  For availability of eligible services outside the Grapeline service area and to obtain a new ID card, contact Access San Joaquin at the number below. 
  • Travel Training:  Dedicated transit professionals are available to provide personalized training to seniors and persons with disabilities on how to use the fixed route system.

For more information about each of the specific services and their applicability and availability to you, or to obtain a new Discount Fare ID card for travel outside the Lodi service area, please contact:
