ADA Paratransit

ADA paratransit service is the complement to fixed-route service providing transit access to individuals with disabilities that prevent them from using the fixed-route bus system. The service is provided 365 days a year within a 3/4 mile radius of all fixed routes operated by The S. As a door-to-door, shared-ride transit service operating within Stanislaus County, riders will often share their ride with others traveling in the same general direction. Travel time will be similar to a bus trip rather than a car or taxi. The service may be used for any purpose.

Please call 209-527-4900 to see if ADA paratransit serves your area, or reference the map below.
