WELCOME TO THE

SOUTHEAST AREA TRANSIT DISTRICT

 


The American with Disabilities Act of 1990

    

What is the ADA?

 

The term "The ADA" refers to The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.  The ADA is a civil rights law that guarantees people with disabilities equal access to the same programs and services available to people without disabilities.

The ADA guarantees people with disabilities equal opportunities to fully participate in society, live independently, and be economically self-reliant.  The ADA does not guarantee these individuals more services than what is available for people who do not have a disability.  The ADA is meant to enable people with disabilities to be independent, integrated and self-sufficient.

 

What does the ADA say about public transportation?

The Americans with Disability Act requires that publicly funded transportation systems accommodate an individual who has a disability.  The law identifies standards accessibility for vehicles, transit facilities, transit stops, and transfer points.  It also requires announcements of major stops and time points be made on fixed route systems.  When an individual's disability and/or accessibility issues to a particular destination prevent him/her from using the fixed route system, Para transit service must be provided.

The term "ADA Paratransit" refers to publicly funded transportation service provided to people whose disability prevents them from using a fixed route system for all or some of their trips. 

                                                                                                                 

Who can apply for ADA Paratransit service?

Anyone with a disability can apply for ADA Paratransit service.  A disability is defined as:

 

"A physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of major life activities of such individual; a record of such; or being regarded as having such an impairment" 

[Section 37.3 (4)]

The ADA is a civil rights legislation that guarantees people with disabilities equal access to the same services that people without disabilities have access to.  It behooves ADA Paratransit providers, therefore, to establish a thorough, equitable and accurate eligibility process.
