How to Apply

All riders applying for paratransit must meet with an Eligibility Specialist for an assessment interview to ensure that paratransit is the right transit option for them. 

Assessment interviews are customized to each person’s mobility, sensory, and cognitive ability. During the interview, you will be asked about your experience riding transit, and may be asked to do activities to check your balance, strength, coordination, and range of motion.

Please note that the rider assessment interview may take one-to-two hours to complete. Be sure to dress for comfort and the weather as activities may take place outdoors.

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

Everett Transit is committed to providing equal access to all our services. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) prohibits discrimination and ensures equal opportunity and access for persons with disabilities.

Section 504 Compliance Handbook and ADA define disability as (1) a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities; (2) a record of such an impairment; or (3) being regarded as having such an impairment. The guidance observes that the definition of disability under Section 504 and the ADA might differ from the definition of disability under other laws, such as the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act.
