These shuttles provide specialized services for healthcare facilities and handicapped persons who may not be able to use transit on a full-time basis as a requirement for transit agencies to follow the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines. Paratransit vehicles fill the gap for senior and handicapped passengers wanting to get around their communities and beyond. By law, these services are required to provide deviated services up to 3/4-mile of a regular bus route, and these may require special IDs to use such services. But many of them travel beyond the minimum distance to serve far-flung communities and residential care homes.
