Transit isn’t truly a viable option if mobility-challenged residents aren’t able to use it. Since a city functions best when all residents are mobile, public transit service is working to become truly democratic in Fredericton—available and accessible to all.
In addition, Fredericton offers a Para Transit service to provide a specialized transportation service to mobility challenged residents. To register for Para Transit —and users must be registered—contact Easter Seals New Brunswick.
Reservations for Para Transit are available by subscription (regular users, consistent times and destinations) and through prior day request. One way fares are $3.00. Attendants, where required, travel free of charge.
Para Transit operates two wheelchair lift equipped buses, Monday to Saturday from 7:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. Service is complemented by a contract with a local operator for those clients who are semi-ambulatory, or those who are able to travel by automobile.
