YOU ARE ELIGIBLE TO RIDE THE PARATRANSIT BUS IF YOU:

  1. Any person who is unable to board, ride, or exit a Watertown CitiBus Fixed Route bus without the assistance of another person as a result of a physical, visual, or mental disability.
  2. Any person with a functional disability who has a specific impairment related condition that makes it impossible for them to travel to a Watertown CitiBus Fixed Route bus stop.


HOW DOES THE CERTIFICATION PROCESS WORK?

All persons with disabilities wishing to be certified, as "ADA Paratransit Eligible" must:

• Complete the application form
• Have your doctor or licensed health care professional complete the Professional Verification Form.

Mail or FAX the completed forms to:

                              CitiBus Paratransit Services    
                              544 Newell Street

Once your application and the professional verification forms have been received, the City of Watertown will mail you written notification of your eligibility status. All those who fill out an application will receive temporary eligibility until the official written notification has been sent.
