RYDE: On-Demand Transportation for Seniors in West Valley

Too many seniors in Saratoga, Cupertino, Los Gatos, Campbell and Monte Sereno were stuck in their homes and couldn’t make their way to see family, friends or get to a doctor’s appt.  To help solve that problem Supervisor Simitian proposed RYDE (Reach Your Destination Easily) offering residents in those five West Valley communities an affordable ride using needs-based sliding scale pricing.  Through a joint agreement between the County, VTA, and the five participating cities. local non-profits host the program, keeping costs low by using both volunteers and commercial driving services.
