All EMBARK buses and ferries meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements, offering wheelchair lifts and other features to accommodate riders with disabilities.
Senior adults and people with disabilities readily use EMBARK to get around. Travel training is available, and we offer special services for those who can't use regular bus service.
It is EMBARK's policy to ensure that communications with participants and members of the public with disabilities are as effective as communications with others.
EMBARK will give primary consideration to the choice of auxiliary aid or service requested by the individual with a disability.
