Transportation Development Act of 1971

Dave Minksy

Why does San Luis Obispo County pay for senior citizen transportation? The roots of that particular social service are in circa 1970s state legislation.

The San Luis Obispo Council of Governments (SLOCOG) is a governmental agency that receives federal and state funding for — and plans — the county’s regional transportation. This month, SLOCOG voted on awarding a taxpayer-funded grant to a new company for the county’s senior citizen transportation program, instead of one that’s served the county for years.
