Personal Care Attendants (PCAs)

DART Paratransit

One Personal Care Attendant (PCA) may ride, free of charge, with an ADA qualified rider on DART. A PCA will be required if assistance is needed getting to and from the DART Paratransit vehicle or assistance transporting oxygen or other carry-on items. A PCA may also be needed if you are having difficulty maneuvering your mobility device. In addition to PCAs, you may also reserve a ride to bring along one companion (family, friend, or individual other than your PCA). Companions pay the same fare as the ADA certified passenger. Please tell the dispatcher if a PCA and/or a companion will be riding with you. Your PCA and/or companion must go to the same location you are going and must board and exit the bus with you.

FAST Fixed Route

An ADA qualified passenger, who acknowledges the need for a Personal Care Attendant (PCA), may have one travel with them free of charge on all FAST buses. Other companions must pay the regular fare.
