Paratransit Service

Paratransit services will continue to operate in order to meet the needs of the community. The agency asks Paratransit riders to assist in helping to keep the community safe by prioritizing reservations. Life-sustaining reservations will take priority at this time, followed by nutrition. We ask passengers to limit the number of recreation-based trips for their safety and the safety of our operators.

Paratransit riders can call the Paratransit reservation line at 318.673.5316 to speak with a customer service representative or click here to visit the Paratransit page.

Current Preventative Methods

The agency remains committed to the safety of our riders and has implemented additional disinfecting methods when cleaning the vehicle fleet. Our regular cleaning process includes; trash removal, sweeping and mopping of vehicle floors, and wiping down passenger and driver areas with a disinfectant solution.

The agency is enhancing the daily cleaning process to include an additional disinfectant that is sprayed to deter the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). The additional cleaning process is designed to disinfect high touch areas, including all railings, seating, operator area, and fareboxes. The agency will continue to clean and disinfect all vehicles within the fleet. This includes all buses and paratransit vehicles. Each vehicle is cleaned throughout the day with a deep cleaning occurring every 24 hours. A log is maintained of all vehicles cleaned and updated daily.
