Accompanying Individuals

The ADA regulations specify that one individual accompanying a person with disabilities shall be provided complementary paratransit service under the following conditions:

  • Accompanying individuals shall have the same origin and destination as the eligible individuals.
  • Additional individuals accompanying the eligible individual shall be provided service, provided that space is available for them on the vehicle and that their transportation will not result in a denial of service to other individuals with disabilities.
  • If the person accompanying the eligible individual is a family member or friend and not regarded as a personal care attendant.
  • If the paratransit eligible individual is traveling with a personal care attendant, the Middletown Transit District shall provide service to one other individual in addition to the attendant.
