Heads up, residents: Potential change to the Gilbert’s Paratransit Service area, which is proposed to take effect on October 26, 2020.
Gilbert is committed to providing a variety of safe and effective transportation options for residents. These options currently include fixed-route bus service as well as alternative services for ADA certified riders including Paratransit and RideChoice. As the population of Gilbert continues to grow, the proposed change will help create a more sustainable transportation system, to ensure residents have their needs met into the future.
Paratransit Service is required by Federal law to be provided within three-quarters of a mile of all local bus routes. Currently in Gilbert, Paratransit Service and RideChoice are both available townwide. Similar to changes that have recently occurred in other communities, Gilbert is proposing a change to provide Paratransit Service within three-quarters of a mile of all local bus routes. RideChoice service will continue to serve all ADA certified residents townwide.
The map below shows the proposed Gilbert Paratransit Service area.
