Participate in Upcoming Community Listening Sessions

The City of Pleasanton and Livermore Amador Valley Transportation Authority (LAVTA)/Wheels is hosting community listening sessions for the Mobility Forward: Tri-Valley Paratransit Study. The study will focus on improving paratransit services for older adults, as well as people with disabilities living in the Tri-Valley area.

Paratransit services are currently operated by the City of Pleasanton and LAVTA/Wheels and participating agencies created this partnership to ensure Tri-Valley residents continue to have access to services and other amenities, especially as the population of older adults grows.

 

Residents are invited to attend one of the following Listening Session:

  • Saturday, June 24, 10 a.m.-noon at the Dublin Public Library, 200 Civic Plaza Dr., Dublin
  • Tuesday, June 27, 10 a.m.-noon at the Livermore Community Center, 4444 East Ave., Livermore
  • Tuesday June 27, 2-4 p.m. at the Pleasanton Senior Center, 5353 Sunol Blvd., Pleasanton

 

At the listening sessions, residents will learn about the study, talk with transit planners, share likes and dislikes about paratransit services, and share ideas for improvements and discuss residents’ priorities.

 

“Listening sessions are an important step in the study to provide an opportunity for residents to learn more about the study and for the City of Pleasanton and LAVTA to listen to what residents have to say about their experiences with Paratransit Services and what they would like to see in the future,” said Becky Hopkins, community services manager for the City of Pleasanton.

Christy Wegener, director of planning and operations at LAVTA shared, “In addition to the listening sessions, there will also be community outreach efforts conducted to receive input from Tri-Valley residents at local libraries, farmers markets and other community wide events.”
