KART’s Paratransit (origin to destination) service is aligned with the minimum service requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). Contact a KART Transit Assistant for more information regarding the Paratransit program by calling 559-852-2717.
KART Paratransit is a form of public transportation. KART offers a shared ride service for persons who, because of their disability, are unable to use the regular fixed route bus. Paratransit service is available to all ADA Paratransit qualified individuals to any location within 3⁄4 of a mile of a fixed route bus stop operated by KART.
Disability alone does not create eligibility; the decision is based on the applicant’s functional ability to use the bus and is not a medical decision. At the same time, the availability of fixed-route service does not constitute eligibility.
