    The ATU plays a role in an important civil rights issue: ensuring that seniors and persons with disabilities have access to high quality paratransit services. The Americans with Disabilities Act, passed in 1990, combated discrimination and put requirements into place to help persons with disabilities live and work in an integrated setting. Among other things, the Act required transit authorities to provide ADA paratransit services to persons with disabilities in all areas served by regular fixed-route services. Some transit authorities choose to provide additional paratransit services to all riders.

    Often described as curb-to-curb or door-to-door services, paratransit vehicles take passengers directly from their point of origin to their destination. In 2009, paratransit vehicles in the U.S. traveled 1.5 billion miles. Vehicles offering comparable services in Canada traveled an additional 49 million miles. ATU members in this industry help make it possible for many otherwise homebound persons to travel to work, school, medical appointments, and carry out vital day-to-day activities.

    The demands of a paratransit job are great. Often, in addition to driving, these members must act as caregivers and escorts for their passengers. They must have extraordinary patience and compassion. Physically, a paratransit operator may need to be strong enough to lift passengers into their seats, or even carry them. They must be able to focus on the road while attending to individuals with mental disabilities.

    Despite the demands of the job, operators often experience lower wages, fewer benefits and higher rates of turnover than their regular fixed-route counterparts. Although the provision of paratransit services is required by the ADA, no additional funding is allotted for this mandate. As a consequence, many providers choose to subcontract it out to private companies to keep costs as low as possible. The ATU believes paratransit workers deserve decent wages and benefits for the valuable service they provide.

    From streetcar operators in Toronto, to bus drivers in San Diego, ATU represents the men and women who help move the United States and Canada. Millions of riders depend on public transit to get to work, to medical appointments, and to the grocery store every single day. Our members are the bus drivers, rail operators, mechanics, station attendants and other support personnel who make safe, efficient, and affordable public transportation possible.

    From 1995 to 2009, public transportation ridership in the U.S. grew at a rate of 34 percent – twice as fast as the population growth rate and 10 percentage points faster than the growth rate of vehicle miles traveled on our road and highway system. As a result, transit ridership is at record levels with transit authorities providing more than 12 billion annual passenger trips in the U.S. and Canada.

    Despite record ridership, U.S. public transit systems are carrying out some of the steepest fare increases and deepest service cuts in recent history. Since the beginning of 2009, approximately 85% of public transit systems have raised fares or cut service, and thousands of workers in the industry—a significant percentage of the “green” workforce—have been laid off. Unemployed people can’t get to potential jobs, and people who work non-traditional hours, typically people of color without other means of transportation, are disproportionally affected. It is critical that lawmakers understand the mobility challenges that their constituents face every day (Stranded Voices - White Paper). With federal guidelines prohibiting some transit systems from using federal money to keep systems running, many systems are in the odd situation of having brand new buses purchased with federal money, but no state and local funds to place those vehicles into service. This transportation crisis clearly marks the need for transit systems to have the flexibility to use their federal funds for operating costs to maintain critical service.


    Public transit continues to be a much safer mode
    of transportation than automobiles.
    (Safety Chart)


    When employers cut corners to save money in training costs, they are putting their maintenance employees at an increased safety risk. Local 1277 is committed to getting training standards and schedules, to help ensure the safety of our personnel and the safety of riders as well.
