SoCal ADA Paratransit

The American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires transit agencies to provide paratransit services to people with disabilities who cannot use the fixed route, bus, or rail service (known as mainline service). Paratransit service must be provided within 3/4 of a mile of a bus route or rail station, at the same hours and days, for no more than twice the regular fixed route fare. Complementary paratransit services is not required to complement commuter rail and commuter bus services, since the ADA does not require that these services provide complementary paratransit service.
