The County of Nevada Transit Services administers an origin-to-destination/door-to-door paratransit service for persons with disabilities who, due to a mental or physical disability, are unable to use the fixed route bus system, as mandated by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The service area includes Grass Valley, Nevada City, Penn Valley, Lake Wildwood, and other local areas. The paratransit service is provided by the Gold Country LIFT. In order to become eligible for paratransit service, a passenger must complete an ADA application form and be certified as eligible. Forms are available through Gold Country Stage (530) 477-0103, or toll-free (888) 660-7433 or online at www.goldcountrystage.com and through Gold Country LIFT at (530) 271-RIDE (7433) or toll-free (855) 314-RIDE (7433), or www.goldcountrylift.com.
