Accessible Public Transportation

The common form of accessible public transportation is called ADA Para Transit. In most cases, consumers need to apply and be determined eligible by their local public transportation entity. ADA Para Transit offers ramps and wheelchair lifts for consumers who use wheelchairs. ADA Para Transit usually offers curb to curb service that needs to be reserved several days ahead of time. Some communities also offer free rides once a week from a Dial-A-Ride service that is free.
