Info

Paratransit is a section within Transit Services dedicated to increasing accessibility on campus by providing individualized rides to people that requires assistance getting around campus. In order to create a pickup schedule, you must first be approved by Student Disability Services. Instructions for eligibility approval are below

Our paratransit system runs primarily on a fixed weekly schedule that is based around the individual’s class schedule and on campus involvement. Along with a fixed weekly schedule, we also arrange one time pickups to fit a passengers needs if a class changes or they have something extra come up and they need a ride. Paratransit pickups are scheduled on a first come, first serve basis. We will need at least 24 hours’ notice of any changes or additions that need to be recorded.

The time that is given for the pick up is the time that the paratransit vehicle will be there and the time that the passenger must bored the vehicle.  Schedules are often tight, therefore if there is a pick-up scheduled in the slot following a paratransit ride, the passenger will be given a 5 minute courtesy window after the recorded pick-up time to still board the vehicle.  At the end of the 5 minutes window, the paratransit vehicle will leave and will return at its earliest convenience.  If no ride is scheduled in the next pick-up slot, the courtesy window will be extended to 7 minutes.  Any questions about other rules please contact the Transit Services Office at 419-530-1026.

UT Paratransit Services does not cater to off-campus sites. This service is only for University of Toledo campuses. The established routes of Transit Services can be used by an paratransit passenger. We have a few buses with wheelchair lifts on them and will make accommodations if a passenger would like to ride one of those routes.

For transportation to and from apartment complexes, restaurants and other destinations not located on a University of Toledo campus or part of an established route, please contact TARPS at 419.382.9901.
