Special Transportation Services
SEPTA’s CCT-CONNECT Shared Ride Program offers door-to-door transportation to Philadelphia seniors age 65 and older. Seniors pay 15% of the fare and share the same vehicle with passengers traveling to and from other destinations.
ADA Paratransit Program offers transportation to people with disabilities who cannot use SEPTA’s regular, accessible, fixed-route bus service.
PCA Attendant Transportation Service (ATS) provides door-through-door and upper floor assistance to impaired older adults. This service is provided in conjunction with SEPTA’s CCT-CONNECT Shared Ride services. Attendant services are meant to supplement rather than replace those of an informal or paid escort. Certification of eligibility is required.
