Transportation

UCP buses deliver hope to clients each day.

UCP buses work daily to break down the walls of isolation by transporting clients who have no other means of connecting to their community.  They deliver clients with developmental disabilities to program and services offered through UCP.

Each day UCP buses help clients of our Adult Day Programs engage in Community Based Instruction through regular outings. These outings help clients:

  • Build a sense of connection to their community
  • Gain real world learning experience
  • Develop specific skills to be able to function independently within the community
  • Increase positive community awareness
  • Encourage respect, tolerance and understanding among different groups

It’s a Fact!

Our buses provide more than 16,000 passenger trips each month. Each year UCP buses travel one million miles – enough to circle the earth 441 times! (2018 data)
