The California Public Utilities Commission created the TNC Access for All Program to implement Senate Bill (SB) 1376 (Hill: 2018) which directed the Commission to establish a program relating to accessibility for persons with disabilities, including wheelchair users who need a wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV).
In Decision (D.) 20-03-007, the Commission authorized "Local Access Fund Administrators" (LAFAs) to develop WAV programs locally, using Access Fund moneys collected by the Commission, and tasked the Consumer Protection and Enforcement Division to develop program rules for the selection of LAFAs, disbursement of funds, and compliance with data reporting.
