Determining ADA Paratransit Eligibility: An Approach, Recommendations and Training Materials

Determining ADA Paratransit Eligibility: An Approach, Guidance and Training Manual was developed and disseminated by Easter Seals Project ACTION (ESPA) in 2003 to provide fixed-route transit providers with information and resources regarding the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) complementary paratransit service eligibility process. This manual is a revision and update of the 2003 document prepared by ESPA. It includes information about the latest revisions to the Department of Transportation (DOT) ADA regulations. It also incorporates information about successful approaches and materials developed by transit agencies since 2003, and it addresses common questions and issues raised by transit agencies as well as by persons with disabilities. This update: (1) Presents ADA paratransit eligibility determinations as part of a broader, holistic process for meeting the transportation needs of people with disabilities, including coordination with travel training efforts; (2) Presents and discusses several approaches for developing processes that are appropriate to the local setting; (3) Stresses the importance of involving people with disabilities in the development, implementation, and management of the process; and (4) Includes a new section on key process management issues.
