Council authorizes contract for paratransit services

Released by The City of Tyler:

TYLER, TX - During their meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 10, the Tyler City Council accepted a proposal from NDMJ, LLC to provide ADA accessible paratransit service to senior and disabled Tyler residents, which will continue to complement the City's fixed route bus system.

NDMJ will provide ADA accessible paratransit services within the Tyler City limits during Tyler Transit's regular operating hours, 6 a.m. – 8:15 p.m., Mondays through Fridays and 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Saturdays. NDMJ will collect a fare of $1.50 from riders.

NDMJ, a private taxi company in Tyler owned by Jamal Moharer, submitted the most favorable proposal, offering the services for $30 per trip and offering a $7.50 local match contribution. All services including vehicle maintenance, passenger scheduling and dispatching are included in the fee.

"To receive paratransit services, you must first apply," said Davis Dickson, Transit Manager. "The application is available on the Transit web page at www.cityoftyler.org. Eligibility is most typically given to people that are 65 or older and/or are unable to board or disembark from an accessible fixed route bus or who are unable to go to and from a bus stop."
