Tuolumne TRIP Program Click for Brochure
The underlying philosophy of Tuolumne Trip is that residents of Tuolumne County can be self-reliant when provided with a structure of transportation support that empowers leveraging of community goodwill and encourages the establishment and expansion of personal social networks. This empowerment philosophy of Tuolumne Trip can help build and connect our community.
In every community, there is a population faced with complications that make travel for basic quality of life needs extraordinarily challenging. This could be due to lack of service availability or mobility limitations caused by physical, mental or financial challenges. Tuolumne Trip is intended to provide a transportation alternative for those isolated and homebound individuals who cannot use current services (listed below) or are current ADA Certified Dial A Ride users wishing to substitute more convenient travel options by providing them with the tools to connect with available and new community resources.
