Increasing Access, Improving Quality of Life
BORP’s accessible group trip transportation service, with funding from Alameda County Transportation Commission (Measure BB funds), makes it possible for adults and youth with physical disabilities to participate in group outings, nature exploration, sports activities, and a host of community events. Our unique service addresses the current existing gap in group trip transportation options for this population. Participants report our transportation increases their participation in our programs, independence, engagement in the community, access to nature, and their overall quality of life.
BORP also helps other organizations to make outings and group activities accessible to people with disabilities by renting out our wheelchair-accessible buses at highly discounted rates.
Transportation for BORP Programs
BORP’s two wheelchair-accessible buses are regularly used for our
Adventures & Outings group trips, and to transport eligible youth to
and from practices, tournaments, and other activities. We also provide
transportation on an as-needed basis for other BORP programs and events.
BORP makes our two wheelchair-accessible buses available for rental at a heavily discounted rate to nonprofits and community organizations. All renters are required to use our drivers, who are screened, fully trained, and licensed to drive these commercial-grade vehicles.
Our Ford E-450 Starcraft buses are 25’ long, 9’ 10” high, and 8’ wide. The seating can be adjusted to accommodate up to five people in wheelchairs, or 15 ambulatory riders and two people in wheelchairs. Both buses feature a wheelchair accessible lift.
