Paratransit is an alternative mode of flexible passenger transportation that does not follow fixed routes or schedules. Via’s paratransit program is an on-demand, call-up, door-through-door transportation service from any origin to any destination in our service area. This is a shared ride service and schedules change daily based on where riders need to go. Drivers assist riders on and off the bus and you may request door-through-door assistance.
This service is the heart of Via.
A ride on our paratransit service is more than just a trip. While we get you from one place to another, what you’ll experience is so much more. A new community will open up to you while you ride including friendly, helpful drivers and other riders whom you’ll get to know.
It starts with one call. Before you can begin riding Via’s paratransit program, an intake/registration phone interview must be completed with one of Via’s Mobility Specialists. A family member or caregiver may complete the interview as well as request a ride.
You will be asked a few questions to assess your travel and mobility needs and to see if the paratransit program is right for you. If appropriate, the Mobility Specialist can schedule your first ride. Other transportation options may also be discussed.
Anyone interested in learning more is encouraged to call our Mobility Specialists at 303-444-3043.
Once the intake/registration process is completed by phone and you have become a registered rider, you may request a ride by phone or online.
We can take you almost anywhere you’d like to go within our paratransit service area including:
