DATS – DEDICATED ACCESSIBLE TRANSIT SERVICE
DATS is a door-to-door public transportation service for Edmontonians who cannot use regular transit for some or all of their travel needs, due to a physical or cognitive impairment.
DATS is a shared-ride public transportation service operating within the City of Edmonton corporate limits. Wheelchair lift-equipped vehicles, minivans, accessible minivans, taxis, and vans are used to provide DATS service. Vehicles used are clearly identified as “DATS” vehicles.
DATS clients must apply, meet eligibility requirements, and be registered before using DATS.
DATS is administered and scheduled by the DATS section of ETS (Edmonton Transit Service). The DATS budget is supported primarily by the City of Edmonton tax levy. The cost of the service is partially offset with fares collected from the DATS users. Trips are scheduled to make maximum use of this shared ride service while staying within budget.
All passengers must be registered with DATS before booking trips. For more information, call the DATS Customer Care Centre.
