JCT Fixed Route Service Notes

BICYCLISTS: JCT's fixed route buses have bicycle racks on the front of the bus, onto which you may load your bicycle. JCT is not responsible for damages incurred or caused by or to bicycles on JCT bicycle racks. (Note: Bicyclists may bring their bicycle on board any older JCT fixed route vehicles which are not equipped with bicycle racks, as space allows.)

WHEELCHAIRS: JCT will transport all wheelchairs and occupants if the lift and the vehicle can physically accomodate them, unless doing so is inconsistent with legitimate safety requirements.

The majority of JCT's fixed route buses are low-floor and are equipped with ramps.  Patrons using wheelchairs should board these buses by driving their wheelchair "face forward" onto the bus ramp.  However, for safety reasons, on JCT's buses which are equipped with wheelchair lifts rather than ramps, patrons using wheelchairs are strongly encouraged to be loaded by backing the wheelchair onto the vehicle lift (with patron facing away from the vehicle).  All patrons using wheelchairs must allow JCT drivers to secure their wheelchair/mobility aid once they have boarded the JCTvehicle. Drivers will assist patrons on and off the vehicle as needed/requested. 

JCT Passengers age six or under:  JCT requires a passenger age six or under to be accompanied by a companion who is age twelve or older.

Walkers with seats and light-weight transport chairs are not designed by their manufacturers to serve as wheelchairs and are not safe for a passenger to sit on during a ride on a public transit vehicle.  Therefore, for their own safety, passengers using these devices are strongly encouraged to transfer to a regular JCT vehicle seat during the ride. (JCT driver will assist with this seat transfer, as needed/requested.)  The passenger's walker or transport-chair will be stored on the vehicle during the ride.
