Low-floor buses are equipped with a ramp, have no entry steps and have a kneeling feature that lowers the entry level for passengers who have difficulty climbing stairs.

handyDART is a transportation service for persons who have a disability that is sufficiently severe that the person is unable to use conventional transit service without assistance. handyDART service is provided to and from accessible building entrances. You must be registered with the handyDART office before you can use the service.

Rural Transit provides fully accessible bus service for people living outside of the fixed-route transit service area.
