I am a ‘seasoned’ disabled paratransit passenger in other cities in California. I recently had my first rides with Whistlestop, and NEVER have I been handled with such care, sensitivity and in such a professional way. Your sister services can certainly learn from you and your team. THANK YOU!”

Thank you so much for your wonderful Whistlestop bus service. It allows my son to visit his elderly mother on weekends. We are so grateful!”
