	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 61, as introduced, Travis Allen. Shuttle services: loading and
unloading of passengers.
   Under existing law, a person may not stop, park, or leave a
vehicle standing alongside a curb space authorized for the loading or
unloading of passengers of a bus engaged as a common carrier in
local transportation when indicated by a sign or red paint on the
curb, except that existing law allows local authorities to permit
schoolbuses to stop alongside these curb spaces upon agreement
between a transit system operating buses as common carriers in local
transportation and a public school district or private school.
   This bill would also allow local authorities to permit shuttle
service vehicles, as defined, to stop for the loading or unloading of
passengers alongside these curb spaces upon agreement between a
transit system operating buses engaged as common carriers in local
transportation and a shuttle service provider, as defined.
   Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: no.
