Paratransit Service:

What is Paratransit?

It is curb-to-curb shared-ride transportation for people who, because of the effects of their disability, are unable to use the regular Citylink bus.

The regular bus service is meant to be everyone’s first choice for public transportation and for ease of entry; all buses are lift equipped and wheelchair accessible. Having a disability does not by itself qualify you for paratransit service, it is not a social service; the qualification is based solely on an individual’s functional ability to use the regular bus.
