ADA Eligibility

Access San Joaquin offers ADA complementary service for those who qualify under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This program is specifically designed for those individuals who due to their disability, are functionally unable to use fixed-route services in San Joaquin County.

Discount Fare Card

Per federal guidelines, the elderly, persons with disabilities, and Medicare cardholders may be able to ride certain services for a fare that is no more than one-half the base fare charged other persons. Access San Joaquin issues a Discount Fare Card (DFC) to approved, qualified persons who meet such eligibility criteria.  Any person, regardless of age or condition, may ride for a discount fare when displaying a Medicare Card or a DMV placard and a photo ID (under federal law).

Travel Training

Access San Joaquin is pleased to offer free travel training within the San Joaquin County service area.  In an effort to provide greater independence and increase mobility options for senior citizens and people with disabilities, travel training offers instruction on how to use fixed-route public transportation.

My Ride (formerly VIP)

The My Ride program is a self-directed, practical, and empowering mileage reimbursement service that enables ADA-certified passengers to compensate their friends and neighbors for providing them with transportation assistance within San Joaquin County.
