- Wheelchair Accessibility
All Mountain Transit buses are equipped with wheelchair lifts that can accommodate wheelchairs and scooters that comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. When traveling with a wheelchair or scooter, let the driver know you need to use the lift, and be prepared to board. If possible, please back onto the lift. All drivers are properly trained, and will assist passengers with boarding and alighting, as well as securing mobility devices for safety.
- Visually Impaired Passengers
Mountain Transit drivers announce each stop name as the bus approaches.
- Other Accessibility Features
All Mountain Transit buses are equipped with pull cords, allowing passengers to quickly and easily notify drivers to stop.

Mountain Transit makes every effort to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, as an employer and as well as in the course of providing transportation services.

Reduced fares for Seniors, Veterans and Disabled

TRIP Transportation Reimbursement and information Program
Mountain Transit strives to improve mobility for seniors and persons with disabilities. The Transportation Reimbursement for Individuals Program (TRIP) provides an incentive for volunteer drivers (usually friends or neighbors) to assist eligible individuals who are unable to drive or access public transportation by providing necessary, escorted transportation. Participants receive funds to reimburse the volunteer driver and to offset the cost associated with providing transportation. TRIP is a self-directed, mileage reimbursement transportation service that complements public transportation. Volunteers such as friends and neighbors transport transit-dependent elderly, people with disabilities, and others to access medical and other services where no transit service exists
