ADA Paratransit is a shared ride, advanced reservation, origin-to-destination service for individuals who, because of their disability, are unable to use Transit Orange services for some or all trips. Individuals who are interested must apply and be found eligible according to ADA guidelines. Individuals who have been certified as ADA eligible in other communities may use the local paratransit service when visiting Orange County.

Mandated by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, Paratransit services are provided in all areas with local bus services (fixed route) for people who can’t use the local bus system due to their disability. Similar to Dial-A-Bus in that you need to reserve a ride by calling at least a day in advance, Paratransit service will only be provided for those individuals whose trips begin and end within 3/4 of a mile of an existing local fixed route bus line. Paratransit vehicles are wheelchair lift-equipped and service is provided origin to destination. To qualify to use this service you must obtain a valid ADA Paratransit Identification Card issued by Orange County. Please note that service will only be provided within the 3/4 of a mile of an existing local fixed route bus line.
The local bus systems that qualify for Paratransit service are those operated by Hudson Transit Lines, Newburgh-Beacon Bus Corp., and the Village of Kiryas Joel.
