B-Line Paratransit is a shared ride service designed to meet the needs of seniors and persons with qualifying disabilities who are unable to use the B-Line fixed route services.  B-Line offers two types of paratransit services:
  
1.  ADA PARATRANSIT - Individuals who cannot utilize the fixed route system must receive Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) certification to utilize  this service.  This certification ensures trips are given priority status.
2.  DIAL-A-RIDE - Dial-a-Ride service is provided only to those riders who are age 70 or older. Current riders who are between the ages of 65-70 will be able to continue to use the service, and will be grandfathered in until they reach the age of 70.  Current riders who are under the age of 65 will continue to use the service until their next renewal period. At that time, if they wish to continue using the Paratransit service, they must be eligible for, and apply under the ADA process. Dial-a-Ride trips will not be given priority status should individuals with ADA certification need the service.

Eligibility Determination Procedures - If you are a new paratransit rider you will need to be registered and certified eligible by B-Line prior to using the service. To register for services, please select the appropriate application below and return it to the B-Line office.  Applications can also be sent to you at your request by calling the B-Line administrative office (530) 809-4616.
