Thanks. I don't do paratransit in Ca., since I can use regular transit and
am therefore not considered eligible there. In Ca., one has to be unable to
use regular public transit to get paratransit, and most blind people are
perfectly capable of taking busses and BART, so usually don't qualify.

If you are certified under the ADA for Para-transit service, where you live,
then you can get up to 21 days of service in another area that also has a
fixed route bus system. After the 21 days, you must fill out an application
for services in that area for on going services.
Ralliy does have a fixed bus route system and therefore, must bylaw, have a
Para-transit system also to serve people with disabilities who can not
access and use the fixed route bus because of their disability or barriers
in the environment that prevent them from using it.
They must live within 3/4 mile of the buses route or with in in a ADA core
I work for our Para-transit service here in Palm Beach County Florida and
part of my job is to act as the Consumer Advocate to help others in
accessing the system and using the services.
If I can answer any questions, please ask.
