The RIDE

The RIDE is the MBTA’s door-to-door, shared-ride paratransit service. The program is run by the MBTA, but actual service is contracted out to three separate companies and organizations in the Greater Boston area to run the service. The service uses the MBTA branding and the vans can largely be identified by color schemes with stripes running alongside the van. (However, GLSS also uses their own vans with their own branding in combination with MBTA-branded vans). All 3 companies can provide the service in the Boston area, when the passenger gets out of the Boston area is when the service becomes specificlly for one single company based on the passenger final destination, i.e. someone going from Boston to Dorchester (which is still part of Boston) could call any company, but someone traveling from Boston to Malden would have to call Greater Lynn Senior Services fot this trip; but someone going from Lynn to Newton will have to make a transfer between companies, because they don´t go to areas out of their designated service, for this example the passenger would be picked-up by GLSS and then transfer to a VTS vehicle to continue the trip.
