CCDC Recognized for Free Shuttles for Seniors by Jill Galvez

The following are excerpts from from Jill Galvez regarding the new CCDC sponsored shuttle program:

We’re thankful to the CCDC, CARB, Circuit, and city staff, and the $2M in grants to make FREE door-to-door electric shuttles for seniors 55+ in Northwest Chula Vista in early 2022, a project three years in the making that I started working on during my first month in office.

Three years in the making!! This is the free door-to-door shuttle service area map for seniors 55+ that I’ve been telling you about in past newsletters. SIX electric shuttles will operate 12 hours per day, 5 days per week, beginning (hopefully) in early 2022. You can call via phone, app, or text. I’m working hard on expanding the coverage area and seeking additional grants… Stay tuned!

Council accepted (4-0) 10/12/21 grant funds of $997,833 from the California Air Resources Board, and $1,000,000 from the Community Congregational Development Corporation, and accepted an agreement with Circuit Transit, to provide FREE door-to-door electric shuttle services for seniors 55+ in Northwest Chula Vista, 12  hours a day, 5 days per week, managed by the city and operated by Circuit.
