NRTA’s fixed-route service is accessible to persons with disabilities. Buses are equipped with wheelchair lifts that enable persons in wheelchairs or persons who cannot navigate steps to ride the bus. Operators are trained to assist riders to use lifts, secure wheelchairs, provide information on destinations served, and announce stops, including any stop you request.
ADAComplementary Paratransit Service
NRTA provides ADA complementary paratransit service for persons whose disability prevents them from using the fixed-route service. The service operates the same days and hours as, and within 3/4 of a mile of, fixed routes. Click here to view and print the paratransit policy. Click here to download and print the paratransit form.
