Service Area

As required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), each public entity operating a fixed route system shall provide paratransit or other special service to individuals with disabilities that is comparable to the level of service provided to individuals without disabilities who use the fixed route system. Therefore, the ADA requires that services operate at the same time and within a minimum of ¾ of a mile of existing non-commuter fixed transit stops. 


All Paratransit trips require a $2.50 fare fee.  This fare is for one trip only, therefore, you are required to pay a fare for both your destination trip and your return trip.

Paratransit passengers may pay with exact cash or purchase a Demand Response Ticket Book for $20.00. Each Ticket Book contains 8 - $2.50 tickets. NTS does not sell individual tickets, so the minimum that can be purchased is a single Ticket Book (of 8 tickets).

Ticket Books can be purchased by contacting the Operations Coordinator at (603) 880-0100 ext.3.

Drivers do not sell or accept payment for ticket books.

Note: fares may be subject to change.


To be considered eligible for Paratransit services, you must complete an ADA application in its entirety to explain why your condition prevents you from using the fixed route.
