Change to ADA for Paratransit

I think paratransit should go beyond the 3/4 mile radius around fixed routes. It can really limit where a person can live, and where they can work with this restriction. Also I think the time limits should not be just when the nearest buses run, because of the extra time it takes for paratransit it limits your work hours, and other essential trips like grocery shopping, or going to medical appointments. Do planners always put Section 8 Housing on a fixed route so low income people can either use the fixed routes or paratransit? I think that should be a requirement for Section 8 Housing. Also sometimes the housing near fixed routes may be more expensive, so many people with disabilities could not afford it.
