County announces changes in paratransit services

Beginning July 1, a new nonprofit transportation company, Paratransit Services/Gold Country LIFT, will be providing paratransit service to seniors and the disabled in Nevada County. Currently, Nevada County’s contracted ADA door-to-door paratransit service is provided by Gold Country Telecare.

The door-to-door transportation will not go away and will continue to be provided by professional drivers who will transport passengers to their destination in wheelchair-accessible buses and vans.

Ride reservations will continue to be made the day before the ride or up to 14 days in advance and available 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday throughout Grass Valley, Nevada City, Rough and Ready, Penn Valley, Lake Wildwood and other outlying areas.

Starting July 6, there will be door-to-door paratransit ride service from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays in the Grass Valley and Nevada City area.

Fares will remain the same; $2 one way within the local ADA corridor and $4 one way for outlying trips beyond the corridor.

Passengers will continue to qualify for this service by filling out the ADA Paratransit Eligibility application.

Between now and June 30, passengers will continue to call Telecare for rides.

For information, call Gold Country Stage at 530-477-0103.
