ADA Paratransit

In accordance with the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Harris County Transit provides transportation for persons with disabilities who cannot board, ride or disembark from a fixed-route bus, even if that bus is equipped with a wheelchair lift or ramp. Services are provided within ¾ of one mile from a fixed route. For services beyond our fixed route bus service area such as trips to the Houston Medical Center or the Central Business District of Houston, please contact one of our Mobility Managers at 832-927-4950. Our program guide will introduce you to our service and provide the basic information you need to use the service. Upon request, this information is available in other formats.

It is important that patrons know that our service is a shared-ride public transit service. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), travel times and the timeliness of service are comparable to fixed-route bus service.  Remember that you have a responsibility to use accessible fixed-route bus service when possible.
