Transit is a department within the Department of Public Works under Sumter. Hello, I live in a community for people over 55 and I also have housing problems according to the ADA. The community has bus trips available, but I can't get on the bus because it's not wheelchair accessible (there's no elevator). They won't rent an accessible bus to accommodate me.
They also had a pool lift for the disabled, but it broke down and they took it out and didn't replace it because of the cost. I have been told that since my community is a private community, they have no responsibility to host me or other people. The safety of our passengers and employees is our top priority. Learn how we offer a safe, healthy and clean travel experience.
After detecting possible or suspected fraud or abuse by a passenger, Transit must file a complaint with the Commission for the Disadvantaged in Transportation. Public transportation uses Florida relay services provided by the Commission for people disadvantaged in transportation at 1-800-955-8771.It seems that all the beds were identical and my accessible room had a bed so high that I couldn't sit on the side of the bed or climb onto the bed. I rent an ADA apartment in this complex and the real estate laws say that accessible parking space should be provided to the ADA tenant and that it should be as close as possible to the ADA apartment.” You can also ask what their transition plan is to make services accessible (they save a lot of money each month for the purchase of equipment, structural modifications, etc.) All calls related to the local transport company will be forwarded to the appropriate local staff for assistance. The Commission for the Disadvantaged in Transport offers the services of the Ombudsman to provide disadvantaged transport customers with an avenue to express their concerns about the coordinated transport system and also as a means of providing information about the disadvantaged transport program.
Transit provides services to eligible individuals through several funding programs, including the Florida Department of Transportation, the Commission for the Disadvantaged in Transportation (CTD), Central Florida Community Services and the Sumter County Board of Commissioners. Passenger transportation services may be suspended for violating these guidelines or for any action harmful to the well-being of other passengers, staff, or the program. Transit is a department within the Department of Public Works under the Sumter County Board of Commissioners. Contact the local county or city building inspections department and request information about local ordinances that refer to accessibility requirements.
