Shipping excellence for the Virgin Islands
The Virgin Islands Public Transit System (VITRAN) aims to connect riders to a multimodal transit system allowing for technologically advanced, safe, reliable, and affordable connections to employment, education, healthcare and other essential or leisure services. Persons with a disability ride for FREE with a valid picture identification (this does not apply to the VITRAN Plus Paratransit Service). For current information about fares, routes, and schedules, please visit the VITRAN website.
VITRAN Plus ADA Paratransit Service (door-to-door) is a shared-ride public transportation service for people whose disability prevents them from using Fixed Route Service (regular city buses). You must call in advance to make a reservation to travel. The cost of a trip on VITRAN Plus is twice the cost of the same trip if it were taken on the fixed route system, so each trip you will pay $2.00.
If your disability or environmental barriers, prevent you from using Fixed Route Service, you may be eligible for Paratransit Service (door-to-door) some or all of the time. Your ability to ride Fixed Route buses will be evaluated through the use of this application, an in-person interview, and a functional assessment. The Federal Transit Administration requires that if by a date 21 days (calendar) following the submission of a complete application, VITRAN has not made a determination of eligibility, the applicant shall be treated as eligible and provided service until and unless the entity denies the application.
Please be sure to contact the Division of Transportation at the Department of Public Works to schedule an in-person interview at (340) 773-1290, Ext. 2231. It is to your benefit to schedule as soon as possible as your application will not be processed without this step. Click here to apply for VITRAN Paratransit Service.
