The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 included a requirement that public entities operating fixed route transportation services for the general public also must provide complementary paratransit service to persons unable to use the fixed route system. When this service is required, the ADA specifies when this service is required, eligibility criteria for the paratransit services, the level of service that must be provided, and standards for operation. The objectives of this project were to identify existing paratransit services in the Logan, Utah, area (located in the Cache Valley), describe services of these providers, and develop recommendations to improve the services.
