About Paratransit Dispatch System
Paratransit is a special transit service for senior citizens or people who suffer from a disability. The vehicle may consists of a small bus or a taxi with a predefined route. However, the route may change as per requirements.
This service is growing at a rapid rate of around 10% in North America, Europe, and Oceania due to the aging population in these regions. People tend to acquire paratransit services owing to the facilities available in the vehicle.
The cost to provide such service and the consequent fare are higher than general public transit as the vehicle is fully equipped. Many paratransit services are funded by governments as they provide an alternate mode of transport to special passengers.
