    Hi,

    I qualify for Paratransit in my home state and have “visitor status” in my neighboring states.  My question is how do I get from one Paratransit coverage area to the other?

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    From my understanding, the service area of paratransit is described as:

    transit systems that run fixed routes must also provide ADA complementary paratransit service within ¾ mile on either side of the fixed route; this is considered to be the maximum distance a rider would travel to reach a bus or train stop.

    basically what local public transit is +¾ mile.

    So, while you have permission to use a neighboring state’s paratransit, you would need to find your own way to that region / state via long distance bus or plane.  There is a post here about traveling on the greyhound bus in a wheelchair.  So, you could take paratransit to the bus stop (or airport), take that to the region / state you want to visit, and take paratransit in that city to your hotel etc.
