With over 21,000 completed trips per week, and serving over150,000 riders,
Access-A-Ride (AAR) is one of the largest Paratransit service in the US.
For the busiest or most challenging locations, AAR has designated pickup
locations, with red and white signage for easy identification.
**Let's put our voices together!**
Shelters can: Act as a barrier from the elements - wind, rain, snow.
Provide light in the darkness; a more secure space,especially when buildings/shops
close for the night. Deter cars from parking and blocking Access-A-Ride
from pulling over on busy streets. Give people a place to wait more
comfortably without having to spend more of one's limited income in local
shops in order to wait.
