The Minnesota Local Road Research Board (LRRB) has developed this guide to provide local governments, with guidance on the Title II Public Rights of Way aspect of the American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA) Requirements set forth in the Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.). This guide provides a model transition plan (see tab above) to be used as a template as each agency develops their plan.

The Americans with Disabilities Act mandates that communities with federally subsidized public transit systems must offer on-demand paratransit services for people with disabilities. Paratransit services must match the hours of operation of public transit, minimize service denials because of capacity shortages and maintain additional service quality measures beyond those applicable to public transit such as on-time pickups and drop-offs and acceptable ride times. Metro Mobility, the agency that provides paratransit services to the Twin Cities area through two contractors (Laidlaw and Transit Team), is also anticipating an additional same-day service requirement by the Federal Transit Authority.
