MOBILITY SERVICES CENTER RIBBON CUTTING AND DEDICATION SET FOR WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2019
On Wednesday, February 6, 2019 at 11:30 a.m., the Monterey-Salinas Transit (MST) Board of Directors, community leaders, and staff will celebrate the opening of MST’s new Mobility Services Center located at 15 Lincoln Avenue in Salinas, CA. The Center will be dedicated to the memory of Alma Almanza who tirelessly advocated for improved mobility services for persons with disabilities. Alma Almanza said of transit services “MST gives me my mobility.”
The project was funded by Measure Q, a local 1/8 cent sales tax for transportation services to benefit seniors, persons with disabilities, and veterans. Honoring this commitment, the Mobility Services Center will offer RIDES eligibility certification, and services for travel training, taxi vouchers, MST TRIPs, and the Navigator volunteer program.
Following the ribbon cutting and dedication, a facility tour and light refreshments will be offered.
