Paratransit Service

Accessible on-campus Paratransit service is provided by UIC Transportation Services. On-campus Paratransit Service is available seven days a week for students, faculty and staff with disabilities. In addition, all Intercampus bus routes are accessible.

Requests for rides can be scheduled on a weekly or ad-hoc basis. Scheduled rides take precedence over additional (non-regularly scheduled) ride requests. Transportation Services will make every attempt to accommodate additional ride requests made by authorized Paratransit Service users. However, the provision of additional rides is contingent upon driver and vehicle availability.
