Jefferson Transit is accessible to persons with disabilities. Jefferson Transit buses and vans are equipped with wheelchair lifts or ramps that enable persons in wheelchairs or persons who cannot navigate steps to ride the bus. Operators are trained to assist riders using lifts and ramps, secure wheelchairs, provide information on destinations served, and announce stops. You may travel with your respirator, concentrator, and portable oxygen. Service animals are welcome on board buses and vans and in our facilities. Public information is available upon request.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law on July 26, 1990. The ADA is civil rights legislation which requires that persons with disabilities receive transportation services equal to those that are available on the fixed route service.
It is the policy of Jefferson Transit that, when viewed in their entirety, services, programs, facilities and communications provided by Jefferson Transit directly or by a contracted service provider, are readily accessible and usable to individuals with disabilities to the maximum extent possible. 49. CFR 37.105
