Is Access Link for You?

Are you or someone you know eligible for Access Link? Access Link is NJ TRANSIT's paratransit service for people with disabilities whose disability prevents travel on our local fixed-route system.

This origin to destination service operates when and where regularly scheduled NJ TRANSIT local fixed-route bus service is provided within 18 of New Jersey's 21 counties. Established by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Access Link can be used to travel to places of employment, education, recreation, shopping, social func-tions, visits with family or friends, physicians and more.

Reservations are required at least one day in advance and can be completed via a phone call or email. When scheduling a ride, be ready to provide the specific time of your trip, origin and destination addresses, cross streets and a phone number. An Access Link reservationist will confirm if your intended destination is within the Access Link service area, the time-frame that the vehicle will arrive and the fare for the trip.

To find out more about this valuable service, the eligibility requirements or to begin the eligibility process, visit https://accesslink.njtransit.com or call 1-800-955-ADA1 (2321) and choose option one for the Certification Group. The eligibility process includes an in-person interview offered at various statewide community-based organizations. Upon request, transportation to and from the interview location is provided in an Access Link vehicle, free of charge.
