With the increase competition of various transportation providers i.e Lyft and Uber and walk/bicycle/scooter paths, Dial A Lift and Paratransit services need a safe dedicated loading zone in high density residential and commercial zones for customers utilizing these services. These zones will allow for boarding and alighting specialized vehicles that have right side door openings. Drivers of these types of vehicles and customers require additional loading time allotments than most white and yellow zones. Dedicated ADA Blue Zones should be a part of future traffic and transit planning.
