Riders with disabilities gain independence and access to the community with TARPS paratransit service. Buses with lifts, ramps, and attentive staff make the going easy. All registered TARPS customers may use TARTA’s regular bus line free of fare. TARPS customers may also use our convenient TARTA Flex service for $3 each way. TARTA Flex operates in Sylvania, Maumee, Waterville, Rossford, Holland, and many other areas, delivering on-demand rides in fully accessible vans. TARPS-eligible passengers and customers over the age of 65 can use TARTA Flex in TARTA’s entire coverage area, provided either the pick-up or drop-off point is in a Flex Zone. Find out more at tarta.com/flex.
TARTA’s paratransit service will be available in Oregon for the first time on January 7, 2024, along with fixed-route and Flex services. Oregon residents with a qualifying disability can contact TARPS at 419-482-9901 to find out how to apply for this curb-to-curb service.
TARPS vehicles can make pick-ups within ¾ of a mile of fixed-route stops. Interested in giving TARPS a try? View the map below to see if you live in a TARPS zone.
The continued increase in demand for TARPS has created the need for a dedicated facility. Features of the 80,000 sq. ft. green building’s design includes a geothermal heating and cooling system, solar panels, skylights, reflective roofing and earth sheltering for energy efficiency. TARPS operates in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, is 100% ADA accessible and covers the same service area as our full-size buses: all of Toledo, Maumee, Rossford, Oregon, Ottawa Hills, Sylvania, Sylvania Township, and Waterville.
