Niner Paratransit (formerly SafeRide)

Niner Paratransit Disability Transportation Service

Niner Paratransit provides scheduled and on-demand disability transport for individuals with mobility impairments who are registered for the service. Niner Paratransit has designated pick-up and drop-off locations throughout campus as close as possible to accessible building entrances. Niner Paratransit vehicles drive and park on paved pathways only.

► To reliably accommodate the population Niner Paratransit is designed to serve, disability transport requests must be prearranged through Parking and Transportation Services (PaTS).

► Niner Paratransit is available to those who need assistance on a temporary (recent surgery, lower limb injuries, etc.) or long-term basis.

► To qualify for Niner Paratransit, students, faculty, and staff must submit the Niner Partransit Medical Verification Form to the Office of Disability Services for review. Upon review, DS staff verifies the documentation and sends email confirmation of eligibility to PaTS and to the student, faculty or staff member requesting Niner Paratransit services. 

► Requests are processed and transport is scheduled quickly, usually within 24 hours. To pre-schedule paratransit services, registered riders complete and submit a Paratransit Transport Request Form to PaTS. 

► For appropriate Niner Paratransit forms, hours of operation, and additional information about campus pick-up and drop-off sites, visit the Parking and Transportation Services (PaTS) website to learn more about Niner Paratransit.
