Fixed Route Personal Care Attendant Policy
If riders require a Personal Care Attendant (PCA) to assist them while traveling due to a disability, the PCA is eligible to ride for free.
At the time of boarding, the disabled rider must tell the bus operator what service the PCA is providing to the rider. This service must be associated with the current trip, the current return trip, or the trip purpose.
A PCA must travel from the origin to the destination with their client in order to not pay a fare. If a PCA does not exit the bus at the destination of the client, they will be required to pay the fare for the remainder of their trip.
Companions are not considered PCAs. All companions must pay the fare for each ride.
PCAs also travel for free with their clients on DTA’s STRIDE Paratransit service.
