MetroAccess

MetroAccess is a demand-response, shared-ride service for people whose disabilities prevent them from riding regular bus and rail service. MetroAccess service complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). The term "paratransit" in this section refers to transit that is parallel in service to fixed-route bus service. Our ADA corridor maps can be found here.

As defined by the ADA, a disability is recognized, with respect to an individual, as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. Anyone who, by reason of disability, is unable to use Capital Metro's fully accessible bus and rail services may be eligible for MetroAccess Service.

  • Individuals interested in becoming a certified MetroAccess rider must go through an eligibility process. For information about the eligibility process, to request a MetroAccess application (applications should be brought to your eligibility appointment, not mailed) or to schedule an appointment, please call 512-389-7501.
