Passengers living within 3/4 of a mile of the City Link fixed
routes with physical, cognitive or visual disabilities and who are
functionally unable to independently use City Link fixed route
services are encouraged to contact the FCT office for an
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Paratransit application.  
Disability alone does not establish paratransit service eligibilty;
the decision is based SOLELY on the applicant's functional
ability to use the fixed route bus service. A medical professional
must sign the ADA application verifying disability. If approved
due to inability to use the fixed route service the ADA
Paratransit card will enable passengers to utilize the Mini Bus
ADA Paratransit service, which is
a scheduled in advance
door to door service.
To help ensure your ride,passengers
are encouraged to book their trips 24 hours in advance. If it is
necessary to cancel a trip, please call dispatch as early as
possible to avoid being charged a No-Show.
