Rider is ADA Accessible

All Rider buses are low floor and have curb level entry. They can be lowered to make boarding easier and are equipped to accommodate wheelchairs and other mobility devices. Priority Seating is available for persons with disabilities as well as senior citizens. Passengers finding it difficult to use and / or navigate the Rider Transit fixed route system may qualify for the Paratransit System door-to-door service. Please click here for more information on how Rider's ADA Paratransit program works.

Day passes are good for unlimited rides during the designated day period. The pass is activated by dropping it into the slot on top of the farebox. The valid dates will be printed on the pass so you'll know when it expires. Once activated, you just slide the pass through the slot on the top right side, and you'll be good to go.
