About the ADA Paratransit Expansion Study
The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires that RIPTA provide paratransit services to people with disabilities who cannot use fixed-route service. Qualified individuals who have both trip origins and destinations within a 3/4-mile radius of an operating RIPTA fixed-route bus can use the RIde Program – RIPTA’s ADA paratransit service. In response to the RI GeneralAssembly’s request, RIPTA is now studying options to provide broader levels of accessible transportation, particularly to serve individuals whose travel does not fall within the existing RIde ADA paratransit service area. RIPTA will consider the costs and benefits of various options and report back to the General Assembly in early 2023.
The $75,000 study is funded through RIPTA’s share of the RI state gas tax.
