ADA Services
TransIT offers two services for persons with disabilities:

Deviated Fixed-Route Service
Six Connectors routes -- #10, #20, #60, #61, #65, #80 -- provide deviated fixed-route service Monday through Friday. These routes operate on a regular schedule and can also deviate within a 3/4 mile corridor along the route by request. To register for a route deviation, call TransIT at (301) 600-1725 at least one business day in advance. The cost for a deviation is $1.50, plus the standard fare.

Paratransit Service Operated by TransIT
TransIT offers two paratransit services for persons with disabilities: TransIT-plus and ADA Paratransit. The two services have different eligibility requirements and different service characteristics (including fares, trip purpose restrictions, and advanced reservation requirements). Please refer to the TransIT-plus Policies and Procedures (TransitPlus Normas y Reglamentos) for more detailed information about TransIT-plus.
  • TransIT-plus is our countywide, shared-ride, curb-to-curb paratransit service for senior citizens and persons with disabilities. People with valid medical assistance cards who do not live near a bus route may use TransIT-plus for medical trips only. Medical trips are prioritized, and other trips are provided on a space-available basis. Passenger trips will be coordinated to serve as many people as possible and to use our vehicles in the most efficient manner.
  • ADA Paratransit, a component of our TransIT-plus service, is available only within Frederick City and is provided only to persons with disabilities that prevent them from using accessible fixed-route transit. ADA Paratransit service is provided during the same days and hours as our fixed-route bus services. Trip purposes are unrestricted.

ADA Paratransit
ADA Paratransit is a service provided only to individuals with disabilities who are unable to ride accessible fixed-route public bus service because of their disability. ADA Paratransit service is designed to ensure that the civil rights of these individuals are guaranteed as protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). ADA Paratransit is comparable to TransIT’s fixed-route bus service in Frederick City in terms of service area, days and hours of service, fares and response time as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act and subsequent rulings of the U.S. Department of Transportation.

TransIT’s ADA Paratransit is a component of our TransIT-plus service. ADA Paratransit’s eligibility criteria are more restrictive than those of TransIT-plus (which is available to any senior or disabled person in Frederick County), but ADA Paratransit provides a higher level of service than does TransIT-plus in order to meet fixed-route comparability standards as required under the ADA. Persons who are eligible for ADA Paratransit are also eligible for TransIT-plus. However, persons who are eligible for TransIT-plus are not necessarily eligible for ADA Paratransit.

Passenger trips will be coordinated to serve as many people as possible and to use our vehicles in the most efficient manner.
