Services in your area may provide more easily accessible service for the disabled than regular public transit.

Reaching, waiting for, and using conventional fixed-route bus service can be very difficult for older adults with medical conditions or disabilities. Door-to-door service with specially equipped vans and buses can help.

Accessible transit services provide several advantages:

  • Door-to-door or curb-to-curb service
  • Wheelchair access and assistance
  • Added room for walkers and other mobility devices
  • Standing-order service
