If you use a wheelchair, scooter, or other mobility device, these accessibility features can help you get around on our buses:
- Buses are equipped with lifts and kneelers.
- All buses have priority seating areas inside by the door for seniors and riders with limited mobility, plus space for mobility devices.
Operators shall lower the bus to make boarding and de-boarding as easy as possible for everyone, by minimizing the slope of the ramp and using the kneeling option as needed. Operators shall provide assistance to passengers upon request. Passengers with disabilities shall be allowed adequate time to board and disembark the vehicle.
All passengers who utilize wheelchairs must be properly secured before the bus may move. Wheelchairs and scooters should be backed onto the bus.
Service animals as defined by the ADA are permitted on all rabbittransit vehicles. The ADA applies to service animals who have been trained to perform specific work or tasks for persons with disabilities.
If a passenger has oxygen or another medical aid, it must be in a pack or be able to be properly secured. At times, our vehicles are delayed due to traffic, auto accidents, and unusual circumstances. Passengers must have enough oxygen to last the duration of their trip.
