Goal 1: Remove unnecessary barriers

Paratransit program requirements form a barrier

- The pick-up window on paratransit is a large barrier for people with disabilities. Shortening this window would significantly make transportation much more accessible for people with disabilities.

- The cost allowed for paratransit is significant for low-income individuals. Some people with disabilities choose not to take trips as they cannot afford the fare.

- The advance scheduling requirement forms a barrier. Spontaneous trips are almost impossible.
