Body
I. SUMMARY

To provide Carson residents with demand-responsive taxi services through Yellow Cab and several other local taxi companies, the City Council approved an agreement with Administrative Service Cooperative, Inc. (ASC) on April 21, 2020 to operate the City's Dial-A-Ride program from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2023 (Exhibit No. 1). Funding for this program comes from the City's Proposition A local return. The City's General Fund is not impacted. The program is currently available to eligible residents who are 60 years of age or older, or have disabilities such as ambulatory, vision or hearing impairments. Due to the unexpectedly prolonged existence of the COVID-19 pandemic, Staff is now seeking approval of an Amendment No. 1 to the Dial-A-Ride Service Agreement (Exhibit No. 2) to extend the offering of ASC's services to residents of all ages, with or without disabilities, up to the end of the declared emergency. Should the City Council approve the proposed Amendment No. 1 to the agreement, Staff will announce the first date of availability through the Public Information Office, Social Media, and the City's website.
