Do you have places you’d like to visit but don’t have a way to get there? Let us take you! Seniors 65 years of age and older are eligible for Paratransit service, often referred to as “Shared Ride.” Shared Ride is door-to-door bus service providing trips that are grouped together between multiple customers. Most Shared Ride destinations are within your home county; however, rabbittransit also provides regular trips to adjacent counties based on demand. There are no restrictions on the reason you may use our services, so the Senior Shared Ride Program can be used for different types of trips such as; medical appointments, grocery shopping, beauty salons, banking, recreation, physical therapy, visiting with friends or family, fitness, and more! All vehicles are ADA accessible and, once approved, a personal care assistant may accompany you at no extra cost. There may be a co-pay each time you board the vehicle. The cost depends on many different factors. There is a required application and reservation process. Please contact the mobility planning department for more information at 1-800-632-9063. Our staff will be happy to answer your questions and help you to begin using rabbittransit for all your transportation needs!  
As we near the winter months, rabbittransit offers the following winter weather travel tips:
·       Plan Ahead: Extreme winter weather may cause delays in paratransit service, so please plan ahead and allow extra time for travel. This is especially important if you’re making a new trip or one you are not completely familiar with. If you need to update a standing ride or cancel a trip, call 1-800-632-9063. 
·       Dress Warmly: Remember to dress for winter conditions. Vehicles will become cold during the loading and unloading process. 
·       Step Carefully: Bus floors and steps become slippery from snow and ice. Kick the snow or other precipitation from your shoes before stepping on board. Use the handrails and take your time. Always maintain three points of contact—one hand and two feet or two hands and one foot—when boarding the bus.
  • Stay Informed: In case of inclement weather, rabbittransit may have delays. Sign up for Rider Alerts to receive an email or text message about unexpected service changes. Visit rabbittransit.org to sign up today. 
Don’t forget to wear your mask! rabbittransit requires that passengers wear masks on board for the safety of all on the vehicle.
