Transportation Emergency Support

UCP > News > Transportation Emergency Support

The UCP “More Than Our Name” tagline was created in order to ensure that our community knows that UCP, although standing for United Cerebral Palsy, provides services for individuals with any developmental disability. 

We know that UCP is special. While we primarily serve individuals with autism, intellectual delay, Down syndrome, and other developmental disabilities, UCP steps in to support the community where and when needed. 

While many were ringing in the 2023 New Year, UCP was called by the Sacramento County Office of Emergency Services to help provide transportation for people who were experiencing flooding in Wilton area. UCP responded by sending buses and drivers to help the evacuation efforts, providing transportation to shelter outside of Wilton during the floods. UCP provided 24-hour shifts starting on New Years Eve and continued for weeks after the storm. 

UCP wants to acknowledge all emergency personnel that worked hard to ensure the safety of our community members and wants to give a special acknowledgment to the UCP Transportation Department – the administrative staff who helped organize and coordinate the emergency services routes and the UCP AMAZING drivers who signed on to take shifts. We appreciate everyone going above and beyond.

The UCP Transportation Department is home to a fleet of 75 vehicles, including busses and vans. The Department supports 38 routes, approximately 330 trips per day, 200 clients per day in Sacramento, Yolo, Placer, and El Dorado Counties.
