On the Move Assessment Operations Expand to San Diego
As MTM’s On the Move functional assessment and travel training program continues to expand nationwide, we are pleased to announce that we have contracted with the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) to perform ADA Paratransit Client Certification Services. Under the contract, which began on December 1, 2016, MTM processes applications and will perform an anticipated 4,800 functional eligibility assessments annually to ensure MTS Access paratransit services are utilized appropriately by passengers based on their individual needs and challenges.
Valued at approximately $500,000 per year, the contract is valid for an initial three year period with two optional one year renewals. MTM performs in-person interviews and assessments from our newest facility located in the East Village area of downtown San Diego.
“MTS’s decision to utilize MTM’s On the Move program for eligibility assessments demonstrates its commitment to ensuring San Diego area residents stay mobile and independent while traveling safely on the mode of transportation that best suits their needs,” said MTM’s President and CEO Alaina Macia. “MTM is dedicated to ensuring appropriate utilization of paratransit services. Our local staff has worked closely with MTS to tailor our eligibility certification process. Together, we’re striving to remove transportation barriers for local passengers and ensure the best use of federal ADA paratransit funding.”
