Apply for SweetHART ADA Paratransit
Under the ADA, passengers with disabilities that prevent them from using a public bus route are entitled to an equivalent SweetHART-type bus service. ADA-eligible trips may be scheduled up to two weeks in advance regardless of purpose and as late as the day prior, even on weekends and holidays. ADA-eligible trips will also very rarely be denied.
ADA service runs during the same times and along the same general route as the public bus service. Eligible trips must have both an origin and destination within ¾-mile of a HARTransit bus route, and the passenger must have previously been determined to be ADA-eligible.
To apply for ADA Paratransit service, complete our ADA Paratransit Application. Once your application has been reviewed, HARTransit will call you to schedule an in-person interview, an environment and/or medical verification may also be necessary.
