Los Angeles, CA — Today, Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn reappointed Long Beach resident Dolores Nason to the Board of Directors of Access Services which provides safe paratransit services for residents with disabilities in LA County. Access Paratransit is a shared ride service that provides curb-to-curb transportation using a fleet of small buses, min-vans, and taxis. It operates seven days a week, 24 hours of the day in most areas of Los Angeles County.

“LA County could not accomplish everything we do without residents who volunteer their time and expertise, and Dolores has been there for LA County in more ways than one. She has dedicated so much of her life to improving the lives of some of the most vulnerable, and I’m grateful that she is once again stepping up to serve on the Access Services board and ensure residents of all abilities can access the transit services they need,” said Hahn.

Nason currently serves as Executive Director of Disabled Resources Center, Inc. (DRC), a nonprofit Independent Living Center (ILC) affiliated with the California Department of Rehabilitation. Nason is also a current member of the Long Beach Mental Health Advisory Committee and has served on the Scholarship Committees of Long Beach City College and Cal State Long Beach. She holds life membership in the Assistance League of Long Beach and founding membership in Footlighters, Musical Theatre West.

“I am a longtime, dedicated advocate on behalf of people with all disabilities in assuring that they get equal access to all forms of transportation. Additionally, I genuinely enjoy my Access Board service, working with such amazing colleagues, and I look forward to our monthly meetings,” said Nason. “I am well-prepared, ready, and truly honored to be considered for this reappointment by Supervisor Janice Hahn.”

Nason is also the longtime chair of the Long Beach Transit Paratransit Advisory Committee and continues her longtime service on the ADA Subcommittee of the American Public Transportation Association.
