Stockton Transit and Mobility Incentives
The Stockton Transit and Mobility Incentives pilot program is part of the Stockton Mobility Collective (SMC) project funded through the California Air Resources Board Sustainable Transportation Equity Project (STEP). The pilot program is administered by the San Joaquin Council of Governments (SJCOG).
Through this program, qualified applicants will receive a prepaid debit card that can be used for transit services only, such as passes or trips for fixed-route transit, carsharing and bikesharing. This program is designed to provide people in need living in the Stockton project area with flexible transportation options and to encourage the use of alternative transportation options.
Currently, Transit and Mobility Incentives can be used to pay for the following services listed below. These can be accessed and purchased directly or through the Vamos Mobility app.
- Altamont Corridor Express (ACE)
- Bike Stockton
- City of Ripon - Blossom Express
- Escalon eTrans
- Lodi GrapeLine
- Manteca Transit
- San Joaquin Regional Transit District (SJRTD)
- Tracy Tracer
Prepaid cards will be loaded with an initial value of $300, and funds will be refilled every 3 months (up to a maximum value of $300) up to September 2024. As this is a pilot program, participation is limited. Allocations and duration are subject to change based on funding availability and SJCOG reserves the right to adjust if necessary.
A maximum of one card per household will be issued.
