The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Program

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Program is transportation that is provided within 3/4 of a mile of a Palm Tran bus route during the same hours and days as Palm Tran fixed route bus service. To become eligible for ADA service, an individual must have a disability which prevents them from riding the fixed route bus. An individual must first complete an ADA application to be eligible for service.

The fare is $3.50 per one-way trip. 

The Transportation Disadvantaged (TD) Program

The Transportation Disadvantaged (TD) Program is sponsored by the State of Florida Transportation Disadvantaged Trust Fund. Service is provided anywhere in Palm Beach County during the same hours and days as Palm Tran fixed route bus service. To become eligible for TD service, the applicant must submit proof of income, or a physician completed medical verification form and their completed application.

Transportation Disadvantaged (TD) Eligible customers may qualify for a discounted TD Bus Pass if they meet household income guidelines that fall between at 150% of the Federal Poverty Level or below.
