What is Paratransit?
Paratransit service is provided in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Paratransit functions as a “safety net” for people with disabilities who have health conditions that prevent them from using the fixed-route transit bus system. This does not include disabilities that only make using accessible fixed route bus service complicated or inconvenient. Para-transit is not intended to be a comprehen-sive system of transportation that meets all of the travel needs of persons with disabilities. All FAST and DART vehicles are wheelchair accessible.
DART ADA Paratransit
DART is the ADA Paratransit complement to Fairfield and Suisun Transit’s (FAST) local fixed routes. This means that DART operates much the same as the fixed route bus system during the same days and hours. This service is an origin-to-destination, shared ride service within the Cities of Fairfield and Suisun City. DART travels within a ¾ mile area on either side and at the ends of fixed route corridors, and within ¾ of a mile up to and surrounding the Ulatis Cultural Center and Kaiser in Vacaville.
