About Tri-City Paratransit

All of Union City's buses are accessible, and many persons with disabilities are able to use the regular fixed-route bus service. However, if you are unable to use fixed-route transit for some or all of your trips, you may be eligible for Tri-City Paratransit.  This eligibility criteria comes from the Americans with Disabilities Act.  If you're not sure whether you're able to use the regular bus, contact Tri-City for more information.

Using Tri-City Paratransit
The Tri-City Paratransit Program offers low-cost transportation to Union City residents who cannot get around by bus or BART due to a disability.  Their lift-equipped vehicles will take you from your door to your destination and back within the Tri-City area of Fremont, Newark and Union City.

ADA Eligibility

he Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, better known as ADA, is federal legislation that guarantees persons with disabilities full and equal access to the same services and accommodations that are available to people without disabilities.

The ADA requires public transit operators to provide paratransit service to persons with disabilities that is comparable to the level of fixed-route service provided.  Persons with disabilities who cannot independently ride fixed-route transit may be eligible for paratransit service.
