Valley Transit honors findings of Paratransit eligibility from other jurisdictions on the same basis as Presumptive Eligibility. For example, a rider visiting Walla Walla from Tri-Cities would enjoy up to 21 days of the same riding privileges on the local system as they found they were eligible for at home. After 21 days they would need to submit a formal application on the Valley Transit system to continue their eligibility status. This visitor status is measured during a rolling 365-day period. (49 CFR 37.121) As another example, if a visitor is coming from an area that does not have Paratransit services but believes they would be eligible if those services existed, they can request visitor eligibility for 21 days by providing proof of disability to Valley Transit. Visitors may be required to provide proof of visitor status (e.g., proof of address, etc.)
If the rider in these examples were moving to the Valley Transit service area, they would be encouraged to submit the Dial-a-Ride application during their 21-day visitor status window to ensure a continuity of service.
Dial-a-Ride is a special service that uses lift-equipped vehicles to transport people with mobility limitations that prevent them from using Valley Transit’s regular fixed route bus service. Click here for a Dial-a-Ride Application Packet.
Dial-a-Ride is available during the same hours as the fixed route bus service: Monday through Friday, from 6:15 am to 5:45 pm. It is necessary to fill out an application and register for Dial-a-Ride before making a trip reservation.
