ADA Paratransit (RIDES) MST RIDES ADA PARATRANSIT PROGRAM Transportation Services for People With Disabilities
In cooperation with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, Monterey-Salinas Transit offers the MST RIDES ADA paratransit program to our customers who have a disability that prevents them from using MST’s regular fixed route bus service.
Each of MST’s regular fixed-route buses is fully accessible and each is equipped with a wheelchair lift. If you believe that you are unable to use MST’s regular buses due to your disability, you may be eligible for the MST RIDES ADA paratransit program.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system).
In MS, the immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body. Eventually, the disease can cause permanent damage or deterioration of the nerves.
Signs and symptoms of MS vary widely and depend on the amount of nerve damage and which nerves are affected. Some people with severe MS may lose the ability to walk independently or at all, while others may experience long periods of remission without any new symptoms.
There’s no cure for multiple sclerosis. However, treatments can help speed recovery from attacks, modify the course of the disease and manage symptoms.
