JAUNT's Services Pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act

ADA requirements

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires complementary paratransit service, because there will always be people with disabilities unable to navigate fixed route bus systems on their own. ADA regulations specifically assign a federally protected civil right to the population of customers who are entitled to this service. JAUNT provides paratransit service to people with disabilities who are unable to use the local fixed route system through a sub-recipient arrangement with Charlottesville Area Transit (CAT), the City of Charlottesville, and Albemarle County. Information on this policy and other relevant information for the general public regarding utilization of ADA paratransit services can be found below and the CAT website at www.catchthecat.org.  In addition, the ride guides for both JAUNT and CAT contain information regarding ADA transportation.
