The RiverCities ADA Paratransit plan is a living document that puts in writing RiverCities LIFT’s operational procedures. The plan clearly outlines how the complimentary paratransit service, RiverCities LIFT meets each of the federal requirements and therefore what the public can expect from LIFT.
RiverCities Transit developed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Paratransit Plan in accordance with the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 49 CFR Part 37 Subpart F.
Plan modifications of note include:
- Establishing a Permanent Unconditional Eligibility for those applicants whose mobility is not evolving and the likely hood of new technologies is not going to change their eligibility.
- Expansion of Visitors Eligibility
- Establishing a Pick Up Window
- Defining a Suspension of Service Appeals Process
- Defining an Inclement Weather Agency Practice
