Wheelchair Accessible Transportation

One of the difficulties in traveling for persons with mobility or visual disabilities is finding accessible ground transportation. The following are links to paratransit, wheelchair-accessible taxis with lifts, and non-emergency medical transportation services available in Virginia.

We make no recommendations, but offer this information as a public service. You need to visit the websites and contact them to see if the company can meet your specific needs and requirements.
