The Freedom of Mobility

WTC provides accessible, door-to-door transportation services to Far Northern Regional Center (FNRC) clients when other transportation resources, such as public or independent transportation options, are not available or appropriate. 

WTC primarily serves clients of FNRC, but can also assist individuals outside of the regional center through private pay options. If you are interested in this option, call us at (530) 343-7994 and select the “Transportation” option when prompted.

Let's Go Together

WTC of course provides transportation as needed to WTC day programs, but we also provide a transportation to a range of other programs. Some services include:

  • Transportation for ambulatory and non-ambulatory clients
  • Specialized needs, such as walkers, power chairs, or accommodations for visual impairment
  • Door-to-door service
  • Transportation to non-WTC programs
  • Safety and individualized service

How to Get Transportation Help

If an individual receiving FNRC services is interested in using WTC’s transportation services, begin by contacting the client’s FNRC service coordinator. The service coordinator will send a referral to WTC, along with the requested days, times, and locations of transport. If WTC routes are available, we will contact the service coordinator to confirm all authorizations and paperwork and determine a start date for transportation.

Unlocking Access

A Brief History

WTC has operated a county-wide transportation system for people unable to use public transportation since 1963, when we purchased our first Ford Econoline van. Instantly, we recognized how vital transportation is for everyone to enjoy inclusive access to the community. Today, WTC vehicles cover almost 2,100 miles daily on their routes across the county. They are equipped with lifts, specially trained drivers, and other accessibility options required for the continued success of our clients.
