Transportation Voucher Program in Full Swing
San Juan County’s Transportation Voucher Program is in full swing after taking a break over last summer and kicking off again last fall. Currently operating at full capacity with over 170 San Juan County citizens participating, San Juan County expects to fully fund a second cycle of participants by this summer.
The Transportation Voucher Program represents a unique public-private partnership of transportation providers, and local social services, to provide community access for Transportation Voucher Program participants. The Transportation Voucher Program boasts taxi service and ferry fare access on San Juan, Orcas and Lopez islands, and auto repair and parts services on Orcas and San Juan. Ferry fares are acquired through partnership with the Family Resource Centers.
By providing vehicle repair assistance to Transportation Voucher Program clients, San Juan County also increases our community transportation capacity, as all clients receiving vehicle repair assistance are asked to consider sharing rides with friends, neighbors and their fellow islanders.
