Oakland Paratransit for the Elderly & Disabled (OPED) assists adult persons with disabilities, seniors and frail elderly with supplemental transportation services. Contracted vendors provide curb-to-curb and door-to-door subsidized transportation service to eligible program participants who cannot access public transportation, by subsidizing taxicab or wheelchair van service to non-emergency medical appointments, shopping trips and other local destinations.
In addition to City of Oakland contributions, OPED is primarily funded by Measure B and Measure BB which is administered by the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC).
In order to use most city programs and ADA paratransit, you must complete an application certifying your eligibility. There is one consolidated application for all city programs. For ADA paratransit, please fill out the application for service in your area.
There is both an online application and a mail-in printable application. Both are available depending on your preferred method.
