Veteran Demand Response Service

Overview of Program 

Our program is designed to enable Veterans in Stark County to reach employment.  Qualified Veterans will have access to Demand Response services provided by SARTA or ABCD at a reduced rate.  

*Veterans who have an ADA recognized disability should complete the Proline ADA application and the medical verification form.  Applications can be found at www.sartaonline.com/proline-paratransit.  

Veterans will be asked to fill-out the eligibility form below.   Once the form is reviewed and approved by SARTA, a Demand Response Customer Service ID number will be issued. Then an employment trip schedule will be developed.  Veterans will be eligible to utilize this program for up to 90 days.  

Tickets will be available at SARTA transit centers: 

  • One-Ride Tickets: $1.75

Veterans may also be eligible for our employment program which allows up to three, 31-day free passes on SARTA's fixed route buses to search for employment or reach employment.  A list of SARTA's agencies currently involved in this program can be found at www.sartaonline.com/transportingstarkcountybacktowork.  

What are Demand Response Services?

SARTA’s Demand Response Services can be utilized for Veteran employment needs and for those who cannot access the Fixed Route service due to a disability recognized by the ADA (Proline service).  Passengers usually ride with others who are traveling in the same general direction, and drivers may stop to pick up or drop off passengers in route.  SARTA provides transportation services only.
