The ASM student bus pass provides free paratransit services for students eligible for paratransit. Madison Metro’s Paratransit Service provides wheelchair accessible, curb to curb service from one building to another, rather than from bus stop to bus stop (Directions for applying for Madison Metro’s paratransit service). Please note that the completed application can be brought with you to the required in-person assessment or mailed in advance. Faxes and emails are not sufficient due to federal regulations which require an original signature on the application. If you have medical documentation supporting your need for mobility assistance, you are encouraged to also bring that to help speed up the application process If you are approved for paratransit, you will also have to show evidence that you are a university student (a Wiscard) and have an ASM Bus Pass.
Before choosing this option think about how much time you have between classes. While paratransit will pick you up and drop you off very close to the building, they may not be able to get you to your next class within the standard 15 minute break between classes. Allowing at least 30 minutes for travel between classes may be more realistic.
