ADA Accessibility

Greater Portland Metro is committed to complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act and making sure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to take part in community life. As such, equal access to transportation services is key to that participation.

All METRO buses are accessible and equipped with passenger lifts or ramps that can be used by persons with wheelchairs, walkers, and other mobility aids. All Metro’s buses contain space to accommodate two (2) people using wheelchairs.

Securing Wheelchairs & Devices

Wheelchairs and mobile devices (such as scooters, etc.) must be secured when possible. Passengers who refuse to allow mobile devices to be secured shall not be transported. When shoulder and lap belts are supplied, their use is at the discretion of the passenger. It is the responsibility of the bus operator to make sure that mobile devices are secured before transporting passengers.
