The county’s ADA Paratransit bus service for customers with disabilities will be the focus of discussion on the next edition of the Mayor’s live television show, “Your County With Mayor Arakawa.”

The ADA Paratransit service is described as an “advance reservation, curb to curb service for persons with disabilities or health conditions who are unable to use the regular fixed route public transit service.”
