Accessible Transportation is provided by the City of Grande Prairie through the Transit Department.
Grande Prairie Accessible Transit (GPAT) is an accessible, door-to-door shared transit service for people with permanent or temporary disabilities that prevent them from using fixed-route transit without assistance from another person. GPAT picks you up at your accessible door and drops you off at the accessible door of your destination. Customers must first register, at no charge, for this program.
Registration details are still under development and will be announced shortly.
Two types of accessible transit services are offered: shared door-to-door GPAT service and fixed-route service. Fixed-route service is provided through the use of low-floor buses with ramps on fixed routes and schedules.
Fixed-route buses have securements for wheelchairs or scooters. Customers using wheelchairs or scooters, registered GPAT customers or Canadian National Insitute of the Blind (CNIB) pass holders may travel with an attendant. Attendants travel free and must board and exit at the same stop as the customer requiring assistance and help load and secure mobility aids on the bus.
