Enacted in 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) required that
paratransit be provided for people who, due to their disability, are unable to ride regular buses some or all of the time.
ADA paratransit services operate within ¾ mile of the fixed-route service area, on the same days and during the same hours as regular public transit buses operate. The service is usually provided using smaller buses or vans, however, some transit districts like Northeast CT Transit District do not offer ADA paratransit services but offer a deviated fixed route service where the fixed-route vehicle can go off route to pickup qualified riders.
