Everett Para Transit is a pre-scheduled bus service that provides curb-to-curb service for people who are unable to use an Everett Transit fixed route bus due to a medical condition or disability.
To qualify for service you must meet one of the conditions established by the Americans with Disabilities Act* (ADA). Everett residents age 65 and over are also eligible. An application is required; processing may take up to 21 days.
There is a link to the application at the bottom of this page; applications may be filled out online before printing and signing, or you can print a blank application that can be completed at your convenience. You can also call us at 425-257-8801 to have an application mailed to you.
You may be eligible to ride Everett Para Transit if you meet one of the following conditions:
1. You are unable to get on, ride, or get off an accessible transit bus by yourself.
2. You are unable to get on a transit bus because it does not have a lift. (All Everett Transit buses are equipped with lifts.)
3. You are unable to travel to or from a bus stop or find your way around the transit system by yourself because of a physical or cognitive functional disability.
Everett Para Transit buses operate the same days and hours as Everett Transit fixed-route buses.
If you visit the Everett area and are unable to use the fixed-route bus system due to a medical condition or disability and you present ADA eligibility documentation from another jurisdiction, you can be provided Everett Para Transit service for up to 21 days within a 365-day period. Individuals who are not certified by another transit provider and claim presumptive eligibility will also be allowed to use the service for up to 21 days within a 365-day period. Everett Para Transit will request visitors to apply for eligibility to receive services beyond the 21-day period.
Please contact 425-257-8801 for more information.

*Section 504 Compliance Handbook and ADA define disability as (1) a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities; (2) a record of such an impairment; or (3) being regarded as having such an impairment. To fit within the first part of this definition, an individual must have (1) a physical or mental impairment; (2) that substantially limits; (3) one or more major life activities.
The guidance observes that the definition of disability under the ADA and Section 504 might differ from the definition of disability under other laws, such as the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act.
