Researching Your Options

Use these resources to find transportation options in your community:

• Your local transit agency. Call or visit its website, which may have detailed information on routes, schedules, and fares. Many transit providers at the state and local levels are listed within the Resource Library on the American Public Transportation Association website.
• Also, many transit agencies provide special services for people with qualifying disabilities. To learn about eligibility, contact your local transit provider.

• Many states are setting up additional numbers for government services. Though not available everywhere, these numbers may help you find information about local transportation options:
  »» 211 (human services)
  »» 311 (government information and non-emergency services)
  »» 511 (travel information)
