Accessible Raleigh Transportation (ART) – Para-transit service is available to ART users who qualify under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA mandates that each public entity operating a fixed route transit system provide complementary Para-transit service to individuals whose functional disabilities prevent use of accessible fixed route bus and rail systems. Eligible users pay for Para-transit service with ART tickets, ($2.50 each), good for one trip, one way only. All trips must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance.
