Paratransit Service

The PVTA provides ADA paratransit service for people with disabilities. 

This service provides a shared-ride, door-to-door van transportation for individuals whose disabilities prevent them from riding the city bus service. 

PVTA provides paratransit service throughout the Pioneer Valley within 3 / 4 mile of a city route.

The paratransit service runs on all days that the city bus service operates.

PVTA is dedicated to providing accessible public transportation to passengers in the Pioneer Valley.

For more information, please contact our main office at 732-6248 ext. 2237.


Any visitor who presents ADA eligibility documentation from another jurisdiction will be provided service. We will accept a certification by the visitor that he or she is unable to use fixed-route transit. The visitor will be provided 21 days of service within a 365-day period.

Any restrictions on their ADA eligibility in their residence city will be enforced here. For example, if the individual’s eligibility states they can use the service only in winter months, they would not be eligible here for service during summer months.

Any visitor who does not have ADA eligibility from another transit agency may be asked to provide proof of non-residence outside of the PVTA service area. Any visitor without an apparent disability (e.g. cognitive impairment) may be asked to provide proof of disability, such as a letter from a medical professional or another agency that has already established disability for the visitor.

If a visitor needs services beyond the 21 days in a 365 day period, the individual will be required to apply for Paratransit eligibility locally.
