NewsNew Provider for Yellow Card Paratransit Service
Effective January 1, 2016, paratransit riders with a yellow card will use a different provider for transportation in the city of Oshkosh. After December 31, 2015, GO Plus’ non-ambulatory paratransit service will be operated by Running Inc. This contractor change will only impact riders in wheelchairs that use a yellow card for service. Although the company providing rides will change, most aspects of the service will remain the same.
Below is a chart showing each GO Plus paratransit program within the city of Oshkosh. The highlighted ADA program for non-ambulatory riders is the only program impacted by this provider change.
|GO Plus Paratransit Program||Card Color||Area Served||2015 Contractor||2016 Contractor|
|ADA - non-ambulatory riders||Yellow||City of Oshkosh||Cabulance||Running Inc.|
|ADA - ambulatory riders||Green||City of Oshkosh||Oshkosh City Cab||No change|
|Dial-a-Ride Senior||Brown||City of Oshkosh||Oshkosh City Cab||No change|
To set up rides in 2016, yellow card riders can call Running Inc on or after December 14, 2015 at 920-231-0994. If your yellow card is expired, lost or has the wrong address, it is very important that you provide current info to GO Transit and/or reapply to remain up to date. If you have any questions, contact GO Transit at 232-5340.
