Wheels Para-Taxi Reimbursement Program 

The Wheels Para-Taxi Program is a premium paratransit service, which provides flexible same-day transportation service for ADA-certified Wheels Dial-A-Ride riders by reimbursing riders for taxi (including rideshare) service. 

Why use the Para-Taxi Program?

The Para-Taxi Program is inexpensive, convenient, and comfortable

  • Easily book on the same day of your ride. 
  • You don’t have to share the ride and can get to your destination faster.
  • The final cost after the reimbursement is often less than a Dial-A-Ride ticket. 
  • There is no extra charge for an additional passenger traveling with you.
