Oakland Paratransit for the Elderly & Disabled (OPED) assists adult persons with disabilities, seniors and frail elderly with supplemental transportation services. Contracted vendors provide curb-to-curb and door-to-door subsidized transportation service to eligible program participants who cannot access public transportation, by subsidizing taxicab or wheelchair van service to non-emergency medical appointments, shopping trips and other local destinations.


  • If you are 18-69 years old you must be an active client with East Bay Paratransit prior to receiving OPED services.
  • If you are 70 or older you do not need to register with East Bay Paratransit, but it is recommended to ensure additional service options.

In addition to City of Oakland contributions, OPED is primarily funded by Measure B and Measure BB which is administered by the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC).
