Accessible Transportation

Are you unable to use public transportation due to a disability? Try AccessRide!  AccessRide serves as the ADA Paratransit Service for the Nashville Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) . ADA Paratransit services are provided to individuals who, because of a temporary or permanent disability, are unable to independently use public transportation. To be eligible for Paratransit services, individuals must complete an application and demonstrate that because of their disability they are unable to use MTA's fixed-route bus service for one (or more) of the following three reasons:

  • Unable to independently ride a bus - This applies to those who cannot board, ride or exit a bus on the fixed-route system
  • Unable to get on or off a bus - This applies to individuals who cannot, due to floor and/or lift equipment, board or exit a bus on the fixed-route system
  • Unable to get to or from a bus - This applies to individuals who cannot access a bus stop to board a bus on the fixed-route system and cannot access their final destination after exiting from a bus on the fixed-route system.

To receive an AccessRide application, interested applicants must call (615) 880-3970, ext. 1104. Once the entire application, including the Professional Certification, is completed, individuals must call to set up an in-person interview and functional assessment. During the interview, an eligibility specialist will review the application and/or assist in the completion of the application if necessary. Applicants may be asked to participate in a functional assessment and must bring their primary mobility aid or aids that they would use when traveling in the community. If necessary transportation to and from the interview will be provided at no cost to the applicant. To schedule an interview, applicants must call (615) 880-3596.
