About this Event

The Monterey Bay Area Programs Committee for the WTS San Francisco Bay Area Chapter is excited to host an event at the Monterey Salinas Transit (MST) Mobility Services Center, located at 15 Lincoln Avenue in Salinas, CA.

Come to see the Center, network with fellow transportation professionals and hear from a panel of speakers about mobility services that provide a variety of travel options to allow all travelers to participate fully in their communities. The Center was funded by Measure Q, a local 1/8-cent sales tax for transportation services to benefit seniors, persons with disabilities, and veterans. The Center offers RIDES eligibility certification, services for travel training, taxi vouchers, TRIPs, and the Navigator volunteer program.
