AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT (ADA) PARATRANSIT ELIGIBILITY MANUAL

The manual provides guidance to transit providers in the development and implementation of ADA paratransit eligibility determination processes. Common questions raised about eligibility are addressed. Experience gained in the first one and a half years of implementation of the ADA complementary paratransit provisions is also summarized. As part of the preparation of the manual, public entities that had particular expertise and experience with eligibility determination were contacted and copies of the forms and procedures which they had developed were collected. Key issues raised by these transit providers are included in the text and copies of sample forms and policies are provided in the appendices.
