Ride Fixed Routes for FREE!


Passengers who are eligible to ride Paratransit—but who can make some of their trips using Fixed Routes--can ride Fixed Route buses for FREE by showing their WTA I.D. Card. 

WTA transit buses accommodate people using wheelchairs and people with other disabilities. Each vehicle has a wheelchair lift and kneeling steps. Drivers also announce stops for people who have visual or cognitive disabilities. In addition, all of our drivers receive training in proper ways to provide assistance to people with disabilities.

Passengers who use Fixed Routes for some trips and Paratransit for other trips can do so without fear of losing Paratransit services. Many eligible passengers use Fixed Routes when they can, and use Paratransit when they don’t feel well, when making a trip with packages, or when their trip requires a longer walk to their bus stop or destination.

Advantages of Using Fixed Route Service:

  • There’s no need to call in advance for a ride.
  • The bus runs on a regular schedule so you can plan your own trips and return trips.
  • It keeps you in contact with your community, including our friendly drivers.

We would be glad to talk with you about how to use the transit system for some of your trips. If you’re interested, please contact WTA at (360) 733-1144 or (360) 676-6844 (TTY) for more information.
