OmniRide Access Paratransit Service

What is OmniRide Access?

OmniRide Access is a paratransit service for people with disabilities. Vans operate within ¾ mile of the OmniRide Local bus routes that serves eastern and western Prince William County.

People who are unable to ride a fixed-route bus because of disabilities or health issues may apply to use OmniRide Access paratransit services. An eligibility review will determine whether an applicant is eligible for paratransit service.

Hours of Paratransit Service

OmniRide Access vans operate according to the following times:

Western Prince William County Service Area

  • Monday through Friday from 4:15 a.m. to 8:15 p.m.
  • Saturdays from 6:00 a.m. to 7:35 p.m. No service on Sundays.

Eastern Prince William County Service Area

  • Monday through Friday from 5:10 a.m. to 10:40 p.m.
  • Saturdays and Sundays from 6:50 a.m. to 10:15 p.m.

How does it work?

Eligible passengers will receive an OmniRide Access ID card once they complete the eligibility process. Paratransit rides must be scheduled in advance once the passengers receives their ID card. OmniRide Access accepts trip reservations for the next service day and no more than 14 days before the time of the trip. OmniRide Access does not accept same-day trip reservations.

Trained Personal Care Attendants may ride for free with an eligible passenger. Other companions, including children, must pay the full fare. When booking a trip, please be sure to mention whether you will be accompanied by a Personal Care Attendant, companion, or service animal. 

Those who are eligible for OmniRide Access also qualify for reduced fares on OmniRide’s fixed-route buses. Just show your OmniRide Access ID card to the bus operator when boarding.

How much does it cost?

Currently, OmniRide’s local transit services are operating zero-fares. When OmniRide begins to collect fares again, riders will pay one OmniRide Access token or $3.10 cash per trip. Each token costs $3.10; tokens also may be purchased in packs of 10 for $31.00. OmniRide Access drivers can only accept exact cash fare and will not give change. No other forms of payment will be accepted on the vans.
