Santa Rosa Paratransit, the paratransit arm of Santa Rosa CityBus and the city of Santa Rosa, provides dial-a-ride (i.e. curb to curb) transportation services within the Santa Rosa city limits and the unincorporated Roseland area. Eligibility requirements require the passenger's disability prevents him/her from using fixed route transit (Santa Rosa CityBus or other transit systems). MV Transportation is the contractor of all paratransit services in Santa Rosa.
One of CityBus' routes, Route 16 (Oakmont Shuttles), picks up Oakmont residents who are ADA Paratransit Certified at their homes for free to take them to and from the activities they enjoy within Oakmont. It also lets residents to get a ride home for free as well. And they can go along on the daily shopping trips to:
- Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays - St. Francis Center (Safeway)
- Tuesdays - Montgomery Village
- Wednesdays - Montecito Shopping Center (Oliver’s Market)
- Thursdays - CVS Pharmacy (Farmer’s Lane)
It works as the Route 16 bus that serves Oakmont. However, as the bus travels along its regular route, it simply makes small detours to pick up ADA Paratransit Certified Oakmont residents at their homes, and then return to the regular route.
Reservations are accepted up to seven (7) days in advance or between 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. on the same day as the ride. Reservations are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
