The Stanislaus Eligibility Center, operated by MOVE, provides one simplified eligibility process for ADA paratransit services in Stanislaus County. Paratransit is a safety net for people whose disabilities prevent them from using accessible public transportation. To be eligible for ADA paratransit services in Stanislaus County you must participate in an in-person interview at one of the four Stanislaus Eligibility Center locations.
Why In-Person Eligibility?
All applications & renewals will be done in person at one of our 4 convenient locations in Modesto, Ceres, Turlock and Patterson. You will no longer need to compete a written application or provide documentation from your physician.
Eligibility Center staff will assist you during your application process. You will have the chance to explain your circumstances in your own words. Family, friends, and caregivers are also able to participate in the interview process. In-person conversations help us better understand your needs.
Am I eligible?
The eligibility process is not a medical determination of disability. It is a determination about what your transportation options can include according to ADA guidelines.
How does it work?
- Call to schedule an appointment at one of the four Stanislaus Eligibility Center locations.
- Free transportation will be arranged to and from the Eligibility Center for you and one other person.
- During the interview your specific transit use skills, abilities, and/or limitations will be identified and discussed.
- Your determination will be mailed within 21 days of completion of the application.
How do I renew my eligibility before it expires?
The Stanislaus Eligibility Center will mail a postcard to your address on file requesting you to call and schedule an appointment prior to your eligibility expiring.
