Niner Paratransit (formerly SafeRide) provides scheduled and on-demand disability transport for those with mobility impairments who are registered for the service. 

Disability transport must be prearranged. Requests are processed and scheduled quickly, usually within 24 hours. 

Designated pick-up and drop off locations are located all around campus as close as possible to accessible building entrances. Nine Paratransit vehicles drive and park on paved pathways only.

Paratransit vehicleNiner Paratransit is also available to those who need assistance on a temporary basis (such as recent surgery, lower limb injuries, visual impairments or chronic diseases that impact stamina). This is arranged through the Office of Disability Services, Fretwell 230, 704-687-0040. After completion of the required form, Disability Services will verify and send email confirmation of eligibility, usually processed within 24 hours or less.
