BACKGROUND INFORMATION

What is the purpose of the unmet transit needs meetings?

The meetings provide opportunity for the public to identify all Fresno County “unmet transit needs” 

that are “reasonable to meet” within Fresno County (PUC 99401.5 (d).

What is an “unmet transit need”?

An “unmet transit need” is an inadequacy in existing public transit service for persons recognized 

as transit dependent in Fresno County.

Who is “transit dependent”?

The “transit dependent” are those individuals who rely on public transit because they do not 

operate a vehicle because of youth, advanced age, mental or physical impairment or low income.

What is the purpose of the Social Services Transportation Advisory Council (SSTAC)? The purpose of 

SSTAC is to receive public comment regarding transit service needs for

the transit-dependent in Fresno County.


HOW TO PARTICIPATE
