TransIT offers 2 paratransit services for persons with disabilities:
The 2 services have different eligibility requirements and different service characteristics (including fares and advanced reservation requirements). Please refer to the TransIT-plus Policies and Procedures(TransitPlus Normas y Reglamentos) for more detailed information about TransIT-plus.
ADA Paratransit is a service provided only to individuals with disabilities who are unable to ride accessible fixed-route and shuttle 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.
Upon notification, TransIT Services will consider requests for reasonable modification to its existing ADA service policies or practices in order to ensure accessible services. Please contact 301-600-2065 to make a request.
