The purpose of this handbook is to provide a model process for determining ADA paratransit eligibility that will assist transit providers in making accurate determinations for a high percentage of applicants. With the participation of team members representing major disability organizations and the cooperation of regionally diverse small, medium and large transit providers, the project team responsible for developing this manual has sought to develop guidelines that will bring objectivity, uniformity, and continuity to the eligibility certification process. The document presents a methodology which relates functional capabilities to specific impairments for individuals with visual, mobility, or cognitive disabilities. This handbook has been developed under a contract from the National Easter Seal Society's Project ACTION.
