This fall, RIPTA will undertake an ADA/Paratransit service study to understand what it might look like to expand current paratransit-type to other areas of the state.

About This Study
RIPTA is performing this study in response to a RI General Assembly request and will evaluate the needs of older adults and individuals with disabilities traveling outside the current paratransit service area. RIPTA will consider the costs and benefits of a statewide program to better address these needs, and will consider possible alternatives. At the end of the year, RIPTA will produce a final report estimating the number of individuals potentially served by each alternative and the resources needed to support them.
