Dear Doctor/LIFT Representative:

Sun Metro LIFT provides door-to-door transportation service on a share-ride basis using small buses equipped with hydraulic wheelchair lifts. This service is available to persons who because of their disability, are prevented from:

  • Independently getting to/from a bus stop or transfer point using traditional Sun Metro fixed-route buses

  • Independently boarding, riding and exiting a Sun Metro fixed-route bus

  • Boarding or getting to/from a bus stop because of the inability of the bus to deploy the lift or ramp at an inaccessible bus stop

The above applicant is applying for Sun Metro LIFT services and is kindly requesting information regarding their disability. This information will allow Sun Metro LIFT to properly evaluate the applicant’s inability to ride Sun Metro’s traditional fixed-route system and thereby becoming eligible for Sun Metro’s paratransit system.
