Additional Demand Response Information

Henderson Physically or Mentally Challenged Transportation Program - Demand Response is a public transportation system established to provide mobility to the disabled citizens of Henderson. Persons with a documented disability which prevents their use of the regular HART fixed route service are eligible.

Demand Response Service is also provided to a personal care attendant (PCA) traveling with an eligible rider. In addition to a personal care attendant, service may also be provided to one companion accompanying an eligible rider. Other persons accompanying the rider are accommodated on a space available basis. Persons are considered to be accompanying the eligible rider if they are picked up and dropped off at the same locations as the rider. Companions are charged the same fare as the eligible rider and personal care attendants ride free.

Complementary paratransit service is also provided to ADA eligible individuals who travel to areas outside of the region in which they live. If these individuals have been certified as ADA paratransit eligible by a public entity, that certification will be honored and provided with paratransit service for a period of up to 21 days.

Demand Response operates throughout the city limits of Henderson, providing one-way or round-trip curb to curb service. Arrangements may also be made to pre-schedule a pickup on a regular dependable basis for your convenience.

To arrange and use the Demand Response transportation service, call (270) 831-1249 (TDD 831-1249) either one or more working days ahead to make an appointment. We reserve the right to negotiate the time requested due to other commitments. If you call on Sunday for a Monday appointment, leave your request on our answering machine. Please be sure to include your phone number so we may return your call. Be sure to speak slowly and clearly, in order to allow us to provide the best possible service.
