EXPLANATION: The Interlocal Agreement for transportation services between Palm Beach County and Wellington for the provision of paratransit services is attached.

In response to the elimination of that route, the County agreed to provide paratransit services to Wellington residents who were ADA eligible individuals but whose trips were not eligible for County ADA paratransit services due to the elimination of Route 45. Attached is a detailed breakdown of riders who have utilized this service entering and exiting Wellington between the months of October 1, 2016 projected through September 30, 2018.

These services differ from those provided through Wellington's Senior Transportation Voucher program in that transportation is provided to locations outside of Wellington and users must be ADA certified as per the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

The previous agreement which is set to expire on September 30, 2019, was for the sum of $56,439.88. The new agreement reflects a total cumulative increase of $12,467.23 over five (5) years and carries a sum of $61,223.08 for FY 2020, $63,059.77 for FY21, $64,951.56 for FY22, $66,900.11 for FY23 and $68,907.11 for FY24.
