Access San Joaquin

Notice to All VineLine Americans with Disabilities Act-certified Passengers & Discount Fare Card Holders

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.

Program Benefits

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. 

Check out the additional services available to you through the collaborative efforts of Access San Joaquin.
