The Town of Ocean City is pleased to provide special bus service on the
new handicap accessible Mini-buses. These buses have a seating capacity
of 13 ambulatory and 2 wheelchair placements. Total funding for these
vehicles was through an Americans with Disabilities Act or ADA Grant and
replaced two older vans with half the capacity.
We offer "special pickups" with
24 hour advance notice. To schedule a pickup please call 410-723-1606. Transportation Department hours of operations
are 7 am to 4 pm daily until May 1. Residents interested in using
ADA-Paratransit services from 4 pm to 11 pm can call 410-723-1160. The
call will be automatically forwarded to the van operator. For more
information on our ADA service or if you would like additional
information on the Mini-Buses, please contact the Transportation Department at
