The ADA regulations specify that one individual accompanying a person with disabilities shall be provided complementary paratransit service under the following conditions:
Accompanying individuals shall have the same origin and destination as the eligible individuals.
Additional individuals accompanying the eligible individual shall be provided service, provided that space is available for them on the vehicle and that their transportation will not result in a denial of service to other individuals with disabilities.
If the person accompanying the eligible individual is a family member or friend and not regarded as a personal care attendant.
If the paratransit eligible individual is traveling with a personal care attendant, the Middletown Transit District shall provide service to one other individual in addition to the attendant.
