The following information was released by the City of Seal Beach.
The City operates a Senior Transportation Program that is comprised of three main components. Those components include a Senior Nutrition Shuttle, a Senior Shopper Shuttle, and the Senior Dial-A-Ride Program.
On Sunday, August 19, 2012, construction to replace the Seal Beach Blvd bridge will begin, which will severely hamper travel to the Shops of Rossmoor from Leisure World. To assist with the shopping needs of the Leisure World community during construction, the City of Seal Beach is modifying the Senior Shopper Shuttle so that users may now travel to Old Town (drop off at Main Street and Electric Avenue) on Thursdays from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. as way to avoid the inconvenience of traveling to the Shops during construction.
Below is the new Senior Shopper Shuttle schedule:
|Day of Week||Time of Day|
|Monday thru Wednesday||2:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. (no change)|
|Thursday||9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.||(Leisure World to Shops)|
|Thursday||1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.||(Leisure World to Old Town)|
Additionally, a modification will be implemented to allow disabled individuals to call Seal Beach’s Dial-A-Ride Program to transport them to the nearest Long Beach Transit bus stop (Pacific Coast Highway and Studebaker or Alamitos Bay Landing) beginning August 27. This modification is designed to assist persons with disabilities who might be impacted by the proposed elimination of Long Beach Transit Route 131 and 171 into Seal Beach.
Finally, the City’s Dial-A-Ride Program will no longer allow users to make a reservation for trips that begin at a user’s home in Leisure World to another location inside Leisure World. Leisure World currently operates a shuttle service that transports residents throughout Leisure World.
There are no changes to the Senior Nutrition Shuttle.
