The Immediate Needs Transportation Program (INTP) provides subsidized taxi service and/or a transit subsidy for Los Angeles County residents with limited resources who have a transportation need and no other resources to meet that need.
The service is made available throughout Los Angeles County via a wide range of not-for-profit and government agencies that distribute taxi coupons, transit tokens and/or scrip to their clients. Metro provides funding for this program.
The Immediate Needs Transportation Program is built upon a cooperative partnership between the two lead agencies: FAME Assistance Corp. (FAC) and the International Institute of Los Angeles (IILA). Each operates under an agreement with Metro, shares in major decision-making related to the program's direction, manages the program in its own geographic area, and reports directly to Metro.
IILA's area for working with distributing agencies lies north of the line described below, while the FAC's area lies to the south:
There are three types of transportation subsidies under the INTP Program:
An eligible participant may receive $11 taxi coupons, Variable Value Vouchers, Metro tokens, and/or scrip. Regardless of the specific subsidy or combination of subsidy issued, an individual may not receive more than $35 in subsidy value per month.
