As a comparable service, Complementary para-transit service is only required to transport riders to and from locations that are within three-quarters 3/4 mile of existing local fixed routes and during the same days and hours of that fixed route service. Points of origin-to-destination beyond this three-quarters 3/4 mile corridor are not eligible for Complementary para-transit service, but are eligible for General paratransit service. Reservations for ADA complementary paratransit can take up to the close of business the day before travel and up to seven (7) days, in advance.
