Barstow ADA identification required for Direct Access service beginning July 1

Effective July 1, 2017, all passengers using Barstow Direct Access paratransit service will require ADA certification. An ADA certification card and government-issued identification will be required when boarding. This requirement matches the entire VVTA System service policy. To begin the four- to six-week ADA eligibility certification process and obtain an ADA certification card, passengers must submit an application at ADARide.com or call 1-877-ADA-RIDE. Fixed Route Senior Disabled Medicare (SDM) identification does not qualify for use of ADA Direct Access service. Complementary to fixed route bus service, VVTA offers curb-to-curb paratransit bus service to individuals who meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements and are certified. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) ensures that persons with disabilities receive comparable mass transportation service opportunities everyone else receives. For those who have received ADA certification, VVTA Direct Access provides paratransit services as an alternative to its more affordable bus services.
