The majority of public transportation providers have separate procedures for fixed-route and paratransit fares. While many fixed-route providers are beginning to transition to electronic payment, paratransit fares still require physical tickets or cash. Funding opportunities and technical assistance should be offered to public transportation providers to combine the fare purchase systems for fixed-route and paratransit services, with additional funding being provided to providers that transition to online and mobile purchasing.
