Apply for STS
Eligibility for STS
MDT will provide van/sedan shared-ride to persons determined to be "ADA Paratransit Eligible" for those trips that cannot be made using the county fixed route transportation service. You may, for example, be able to use county bus service for some trips for which there are no barriers to prevent you from getting to and from the bus stop. At other times, you might not be able to use the bus because it is not lift-equipped or there is a barrier which prevents access to the bus stop. ADA Paratransit van/sedan service is meant to assist you at these times.
There are two types of ADA Paratransit eligibility:
- Unconditional - this eligibility is granted if your disability prevents you from using county fixed route transportation service for any trip that you might need to make.
- Conditional - this eligibility is granted if you can use the county fixed route transportation service under certain circumstances, but need paratransit service for other trips.
