Proposed Del. DART paratransit service change concerns riders

Posted on November 11, 2013

GEORGETOWN, Del. — Cape Gazette reported that DART First State paratransit riders are saying that the agency’s possible switch from providing door-to-door service to following ADA regulations by running service within three-quarters of a mile of fixed bus routes will cost them more and provide less service.
