Bus operators must respond in the event of an emergency or risk to their bus or riders. The operator may ask for your physical assistance in response to an emergency or help in reducing or eliminating the potential for injury or harm. Anyone incapable of performing the requested task due to a disability must notify the driver immediately.
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, it is the right of any transit system to require riders using wheelchairs to have their wheelchairs secured. It is the policy of Cascades East Transit that wheelchair securement is required and thereby creates a safer transport for all riders including those using wheelchairs. Anyone refusing to have their wheelchair secured will be denied transportation on Cascades East Transit.
