  • Access

    Access is a paratransit transportation service operated by Valley Regional Transit through the tax support of local municipalities. Designed to complement fixed-route and on-demand bus systems, this service is available to people who are unable to utilize the fixed-route or on-demand bus systems because of a disability. Eligibility may be limited on a conditional basis, and each trip can be reviewed.

The authority will grant reasonable accommodations requests except where making accommodations would:

  1. Fundamentally alter the nature of the service, program, or activity;
  2. Create a direct threat to the health and safety of others as defined in CFR 37.3; or
  3. Where the individual with a disability is able to fully use the services, programs, or activities for their intended purpose without the modification.
