Evaluate Service Quality

The PCC Consumer Corps consists of anonymous Redi-Wheels and RediCoast paratransit service riders who report on service quality, telephone wait time, on-time performance, and other issues. Since the program began in 1996, members of the Consumer Corps have made a difference by providing the PCC with important data that is recorded and presented to the SamTrans Board of Directors on a quarterly basis.


All potential members must be:

  • Discreet!
  • Objective about rides from the operator's and rider's points of view.
  • Capable of working independently or with a caregiver to fill out forms.
  • Comfortable about sharing ideas and easy to work with.
  • Willing to make a commitment for at least three months.

Members fill out a checklist each time they ride with information about pick-up times, ride times, trip availability, and telephone availability. One form is used for each segment of travel. PCC staff compute statistics from the completed forms and present the information in a quarterly report to the SamTrans Board of Directors.

Members can use a paper checklist or complete a form online. If you use the paper checklist, the PCC will provide self-addressed, stamped envelopes for your convenience.

As a thank you, Consumer Corps members get a free 10-Ride Redi-Wheels ticket booklet for each calendar quarter in which they submit at least eight Consumer Corps forms. Membership in the Consumer Corps is confidential.
