Wheelchair Scooter Breakdown Transportation Service
The Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) sponsors a service called the Wheelchair and Scooter Breakdown Transportation Service (WSBTS) for wheelchair and scooter users in Alameda County that are stranded due to a mechanical breakdown of their mobility device or a medical emergency that has separated them from their chair. The program provides assistance for two basic situations:
- Transport of a wheelchair or scooter and its owner to a wheelchair/scooter repair shop or other location (as identified by the wheelchair/scooter users) due to mechanical breakdown of the wheelchair or scooter which occurred inside or outside the home.
- Transport of a wheelchair or scooter to a hospital where the user was transported for an emergency and taken to the hospital without their wheelchair or scooter. For transporting a person to home after a hospital visit, please use the Hospital Discharge Transportation Service.
This service is available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, and is free to the wheelchair or scooter user.
