Seniors and Persons with Disabilities
To assist senior citizens and persons with limited mobility, Pennsylvania invests in affordable and accessible transportation alternatives. There are a wide range of shared ride and public transportation programs available to help Pennsylvania residents enjoy the benefits of alternative transportation regardless of income or physical disability.
All fixed-route public transportation systems statewide offer accessible transportation that meets federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements for persons who travel within 3/4 mile of a fixed route. Also, individuals with disabilities, presenting a Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Reduced Transit Fare Identification Card or a Medicare Card at the time of fare payment, ride for half-fare on fixed route transit service during non-peak periods in certain counties.
Beyond the fixed route service, there are several programs offered in Pennsylvania designed to make transportation accessible to everyone.
