SMOOTH started as a grass-roots effort when a group of active community members organized themselves for the purpose of providing rides to friends and neighbors to medical appointments, slowly evolving from using personal vehicles to vans, and eventually operating its own fleet of buses. SMOOTH is committed to providing innovative transportation services so that agencies in the community can focus on their mission: serving clients and the community.
Today, SMOOTH maintains and operates various contracts with local groups, organizations, and social service agencies including the City of Guadalupe, the County of Santa Barbara, Tri-Counties Regional Center, Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department, Vocational Training Center, and others.
It's our hope that through our efforts, in collaboration with other agencies, we can overcome transportation challenges in the community, and that the general public will have greater access to needed services.
SMOOTH provides safe, dependable and accessible transportation, which fosters independence, community access, and quality of life for residents of the Central Coast, especially for those requiring medical, physical, and social assistance.
SMOOTH is dedicated to the following core values, which form the foundation for all that we are and do:
ACCESS AND INDEPENDENCE THROUGH CREATIVE MOBILITY SOLUTIONS
