Paratransit

Mobility Impaired Transportation System (MITS)

JP Transit provides paratransit service, also known as the Mobility Impaired Transportation System (MITS), as required by Sec. 37.121 of 49 CFR. MITS provides transportation for persons with disabilities who are unable to use fixed route JP Transit service. The fixed route service has designated bus stops at regular 2-block intervals along specific routes, whereas MITS provides origin-to-destination, demand-responsive service. JP Transit’s MITS service is designed to meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA); as required, JP Transit has established a reasonable modifications and accommodations request process. LIFT/Dial-A-Ride is a comparable paratransit service operated by the Regional Transit Authority in Orleans Parish.

JP Transit operates MITS service seven days a week, and service hours coincide with daily fixed-route service. Please note that JP Transit operates MITS service on a Sunday timetable on the JP Transit designated holidays, which can be found by scrolling to the bottom of this page, and any JP Transit webpage.

Who is Eligible to Ride MITS?

MITS service is available to persons who meet specific criteria described in the ADA. Individuals are eligible for MITS service only if there is some part of the fixed route bus system that they cannot use or navigate because of a disability. An individual is eligible if he or she has a permanent, temporary, or intermittent disability as described below and if the fixed route bus system cannot provide service to a particular individual for a particular trip.

Applying to Ride JP Transit MITS Service

JP Transit has a standardized evaluation process to determine the eligibility of riders seeking access to paratransit service. The MITS service application (see below) must be completed in its entirety and mailed to the MITS office (address provided in application). Upon receipt of the completed application, a form will be forwarded to the healthcare professional specified on the healthcare professional authorization form. When MITS receives this form from the healthcare professional, the applicant will be notified regarding the status of their eligibility.

Applications are also available by calling or writing the MITS Office and can be obtained in other formats upon request.
