Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) Paratransit Service
Dial-A-Ride is Yuba-Sutter Transit's complimentary paratransit service under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Passengers with disabilities that prevent them from using Yuba-Sutter Transit's urban fixed route bus system may apply for ADA status to receive priority service on Dial-A-Ride.
ADA eligible passengers must complete an ADA Paratransit Eligibility Application and obtain a Yuba-Sutter Transit photo identification card with an ADA eligible endorsement. This application will be reviewed by Yuba-Sutter Transit staff to determine ADA paratransit eligibility. Yuba-Sutter Transit will honor ADA cards from another transit agency for up to 21 days.
For more information on ADA paratransit eligibility or to request an ADA Paratransit Eligibility Application packet, call 742-2877 (TTY 634-6889).
There are no passenger
eligibility restrictions for Dial-A-Ride after 6:00 p.m each weekday. The
weekday evening service features lower cash fares. All other Dial-A-Ride service and reservation
requirements still apply during the evening hours.
Does Dial-A-Ride Work?
When you call for
service, you are given a 15 minute period as an approximate pick up time.
Please be ready for the bus at the start of this 15 minute period as the bus
will stand by for only one minute. While we make every effort to deliver you to
your destination quickly, you may share the bus with other riders who are going
in the same general direction.
General public Dial-A-Ride passengers are
subject to transfer to the fixed route system if they travel across the service
area except during evening service hours. Transfers between the Dial-A-Ride and
fixed route services are free.
