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.

To establish ADA eligibility, passengers must complete and submit an ADA Paratransit Eligibility Application. This application will be reviewed by Yuba-Sutter Transit staff to determine ADA paratransit eligibility. If eligible, applicants must obtain a Yuba-Sutter Transit photo identification card with an ADA eligible endorsement. Yuba-Sutter Transit will honor ADA cards from another transit agency for up to 21 days. Download the following for more information on the eligibility process:

For more information on ADA paratransit eligibility or to request an ADA Paratransit Eligibility Application packet by mail, call 634-6880 (TTY 634-6889).

How 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.

How Do I Request Service?

It's easy! Just call 742-2877 up to two weeks in advance and tell us:

  • Your name
  • What day you want to travel
  • Where you want to be picked up
  • Where you want to go
  • When you want to arrive
  • The number of people in your party
  • If a wheelchair lift is needed

When we confirm your service, we will give you a 15 minute period as an approximate pick up time.

Rider Tips

  • Remember to schedule your return trip when you call for service, if possible, and call us if you must cancel your reservation.
  • Don't wait until the last minute to call for a reservation. You can call up to two weeks in advance, so call as soon as you know that you will be needing a ride.
  • For best service availability, try to schedule your appointments away from the busy early morning and noon/early afternoon periods.
  • If you have a regular appointment, request a standing reservation that will continue until you adjust or cancel it.
