This guide describes the WestCAT Dial-A-Ride service and explains how best to use it. In addition it explains who is eligible under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), how you as an eligible rider can become certified and how the system differs for this category of riders. This section updated with the information of the October 2015 Rider's Guide.
About WestCAT Dial-A-Ride
WestCAT is pleased to offer a Dial-A-Ride system that offers more service than most of the other systems in the Bay Area. Many systems are only available to those individuals certified under the Americans with Disabilities Act and few Dial-A-Ride systems carry senior citizens unless they have a mobility disability.
All seniors (age 65+) and people with disabilities throughout the WestCAT service area may use Dial-A-Ride between any two points within WestCAT’s service boundaries, and will not be required to transfer.
Additionally, Section 223 of the ADA requires WestCAT provide complementary paratransit service to all ADA eligible riders, who because of a disability are not able to use WestCAT’s regularly scheduled fixed route buses. Information on this service is included in the section in this sectopm entitled "WestCAT Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Paratransit".
WestCAT is committed to providing safe, dependable, and accessible service and we look forward to serving your special transportation needs.
