Eligibility Requirements and Application

Metro Mobility provides transportation for people with disabilities who are certified as eligible for ADA paratransit service. Eligibility is available to persons in the following three categories:

 

1.      Any individual with a disability who is unable, as a result of a physical or mental impairment (including vision impairment), to independently navigate the fixed-route Mountain Metropolitan Transit System.

 

2.      Individuals who use a wheelchair, or other boarding assistance device, that need the assistance of a wheelchair lift and are unable to board, ride, or disembark at a fixed-route bus location.  This category is not applicable once a transit route is 100% accessible.  Please note; all Mountain Metropolitan Transit vehicles offer lift equipment accessibility.

 

3.      Any individual with a disability who has a specific impairment-related condition which prevents such individual from traveling to a boarding location or from a disembarking location.  Environmental conditions and architectural barriers not under the control of the public entity do not, when considered alone, confer eligibility.

 

Inconvenience in using the fixed-route bus system is not a basis for eligibility. However, if you believe you have a physical or mental disability (including vision or cognitive impairments) that prevents you from independently using the lift-equipped fixed-route bus service, *you may request an application at any of the following:

Within 21 days of receiving your completed application we will arrange an in-person interview for you. Some individuals may be asked to complete a functional assessment to verify mobility or cognitive limitations. It may be determined, based on your abilities, that you are eligible for some rides with Metro Mobility but not for others. It may be determined that you are capable of using the lift-equipped fixed-route bus service. All application information will be kept confidential.

 

*Please let us know if you require an application in an alternative format or require in‑person telephone assistance to complete your application.
