Yes! All of DDOT's buses and routes are ADA accessible.
In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, service animals are allowed on buses. Service animals means any guide dog, signal dog, or other animal individually trained to work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability, including, but not limited to, guiding individuals with impaired vision, alerting individuals with impaired hearing to intruders or sounds, providing minimal protection or rescue work, pulling a wheelchair, or fetching dropped items.
Service animals must be under control by the person with disabilities at all times, and must not occupy a seat and must either sit on the floor, or on the person's lap. If the animal is not under the control of the owner or if the animal poses a direct threat to the health or safety of others, the operator may require the animal to leave the bus. Animals that serve as support/comfort animals or dogs not considered service animals are not permitted on the bus.
Schedules are changed four times per year in January, April, June and August/September. Service changes are based on transit demands, as determined by DDOT's Service Standards, and are designed to reduce customers' travel time.
