NEW Transportation Policy in Effect

SWSRA is no longer able to offer Home Pick Up or Home Drop Off

This service is provided to you at no additional cost. 


See each Program(s) AND/OR Special Event(s) for details of the Pick Up and Drop Off time(s) for each Community Location.

It’s very important that your participant is dropped off and picked up at the listed time(s) so that we can meet our scheduled times.  

PLEASE BE PATIENT: Although SWSRA gives pick up and/drop off times, these are only estimates. We do our best when scheduling times, however, unforeseen circumstances may arise such as construction, traffic, trains, etc. Thank you for understanding!

NOTE: You will no longer be receiving a Transportation Call prior to the Program/Special Event.  You will be responsible to note the details of those pick up/drop off times found under each Program/Special Event on your calendar

  1. Special Events have centralized pick-up and drop-off locations.

  2. Transportation is based on registration for each pick-up point. Please be sure to indicate which pick-up and/or drop off point you will use by documenting the correct code for the program you are registering for. 

  3. SWSRA cannot wait more than 5 minutes at the pick-up point due to demanding vehicle schedules. 

  4. Transportation is available on a limited basis. 

SWSRA has implemented the following transportation procedures to ensure participants safety in our vehicles:


  1. All passengers must be sitting in seats or wheelchairs with belts securely fastened. The driver will not proceed until all seat belts are fastened.

  2. All wheelchairs must have brakes that are in good working order and can stop the chair from moving.

  3. The SWSRA drivers will not be able to leave the vehicles to assist participants to/from their homes.

  4. SWSRA staff are responsible for determining whether or not a participant can be transported safely. The driver may refuse to transport any person(s) if it is determined that it would be dangerous to do so.

  5. Persons riding in Amigo-type wheelchairs must transfer into a van seat and must use a seat belt.

  6. Persons unable to be in a house alone should have someone meet the van at the designated time of return. SWSRA cannot wait more than 5 minutes due to the demanding van schedule.

  7. SWSRA reserves the right to refuse to transport individuals. Please realize that these policies have been developed to ensure the safety of everyone riding in SWSRA vehicles. Your cooperation is appreciated.

  8. When transportation is included in special events, the use of vans or buses may change as necessary to accommodate group sizes and needs. Most events have centralized meeting locations.
