Getting Around West Sacramento, California

Watch a video about this winning project from a 2018 AARP Community Challenge grantee

LOCATION: West Sacramento, California
GRANTEE: City of West Sacramento

Feedback from older residents in West Sacramento has targeted transportation as a key concern. However, it can be a challenge for city buses to meet all of the community’s needs. Although ride-sharing apps are becoming more available, some older people aren't comfortable using the technology. AARP funding enabled older residents to receive training and a free trial use of two transit programs: the on-demand, ride-sharing car service Via, with a wheelchair-accessible van available, and the Jump bikes rental program, which provides dockless, electric-assist bicycles. 

The AARP Community Challenge funds “quick-action” projects that build momentum for local change to improve livability for people of all ages.
