Quick Start

Quick Start

Metro strives to ensure that its services (including over 200 bus and rail routes) are fully accessible to all of our customers, including those with disabilities.

Metro is also the primary funding source for Access Services, the federally-required ADA paratransit service provider for Los Angeles County. This service is offered to individuals whose disabilities prevent them from independently using regular bus or rail service. It is comparable to fixed-route service and offers curb-to curb service during hours when local bus service is provided. For more information, please call Access Services Incorporated at 1.800.827.0829.

Accessibility Videos

A new set of videos has been created to provide customers with disabilities some examples of transit service and features that can be expected when traveling on Metro.

In addition to educating the riding public about accessibility features on Metro bus and Metro Rail, the videos are designed to encourage individuals with disabilities to view public transit as a safe and comfortable option to meet their travel needs.

The videos are available on DVD. If you would like to request a copy be sent to you or your organization, please contact us via email at , by telephone at 213-922-6919, or by mail at One Gateway Plaza, MS 99-21-5, Los Angeles, CA, 90012. Please make sure to provide your mailing address.

Below are some video samples.
