How does a transit district define itself?

Here is how my local San Mateo County transit district defines itself.

The omission... from my viewpoint as a transit critic is there is no commitment to allow the bus rider to carry or board with any substantial load.

"About the District

The transit district also offers Redi-Wheels paratransit service for persons with disabilities who are unable to ride SamTrans.
