Complementary Paratransit service is a public transportation option for individuals with a condition that makes it difficult or impossible to ride the fixed route bus (Citybus). As required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), each public entity operating a fixed route system shall provide paratransit or other special service to individuals with disabilities that is comparable to the level of service provided to individuals without disabilities who use the fixed route system.
Service is available Monday through Friday from 6:00 AM to 10:35 PM and on Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 10:35 PM.
The ADA requires that these services will operate at the same time as our fixed route services.
Service is NOT available on Sundays or the following holidays:
- New Year’s Day
- Memorial Day
- Independence Day
- Labor Day
- Thanksgiving Day
- Christmas Day
Paratransit services operate within a minimum of ¾ of a mile of existing non-commuter fixed route bus stops.
All paratransit trips cost $2.50. This fare is for one trip only, therefore, you are required to pay a fare for both your destination trip and your return trip.
Paratransit passengers may pay with exact cash or purchase a Demand Response Ticket Book for $20.00*. Each ticket book contains eight tickets. NTS does not sell individual tickets, so the minimum that can be purchased is a single ticket book.
*Ticket books can be purchased by contacting the Operations Coordinator at (603) 880-0100 ext.3.
Drivers do not sell or accept payment for ticket books.
Note: Fares are subject to change.
To be considered eligible for paratransit services, you must complete an ADA application in its entirety to explain why your condition prevents you from using the fixed route bus.
Our ADA Ride Guide provides the necessary information for all ADA Paratransit passengers.
