How do I get special needs transportation?

Your local public transportation system may have transportation assistance for people with special needs. This service has different names in each area, for example Wheel-Trans or MobilityPlus.

Usually, you have to meet certain eligibility criteria to use this service.

You can decide when and where you want to be picked up. Generally, you have to make an appointment in advance but it may be possible to book it on the same day that you need it.

It may be possible to get a subscription booking, where you are picked up at the same time and location on a regular schedule. This is helpful if you need this service to get to school or work, for example.

Contact your local public transportation system for more information about eligibility criteria and how to make an appointment.

Many community agencies can help you get more information about special needs transportation. To find help in your area, search for "public transportation" and your area on Services Near Me.
