Paratransit

The ADA recognizes that some users of public transportation, due to the nature of their disability, will be unable to use fixed route services even with full accessibility. To ensure equal access for these riders, public transit operators are required to offer a complementary paratransit service, which is known as ADA Paratransit.

ADA Paratransit services are designed to operate the same days and hours as the fixed route service available in the area. It is important to note that ADA Paratransit services are complementary or comparable to fixed route and only operate within three-quarters of a mile of fixed route services. If an area does not have fixed route service, there will be no ADA Paratransit service.

Access Living supports the work of other organizations advocating to ensure that Para Transit remain affordable and practical for people with disabilities.
