CobbLinc Paratransit Service

CobbLinc's Paratransit Service is a curb-to-curb, shared ride service for paratransit eligible Cobb County residents who cannot ride the local fixed-route CobbLinc buses. Passengers must be certified to use the complementary paratransit service. You can download the Paratransit Application [PDF] to begin the certification process.

The paratransit service area extends ¾ mile on either side of the existing fixed local routes in Cobb County and limited areas of Fulton County. To view the service area, please refer to the Paratransit Map [PDF]. For passengers requiring a transfer from CobbLinc Paratransit to MARTA Mobility, the CobbLinc reservationist will coordinate the trip with MARTA Mobility. If the trip originates with MARTA Mobility, MARTA staff will coordinate the trip with CobbLinc Paratransit. For more information on this service, please see the Guaranteed Paratransit Service (in partnership with MARTA) fact sheet.

If you live outside of the paratransit service area, you may be eligible for the Transportation Voucher Program.

Please see the Paratransit Services Rider's Guide for more information.

Wheel Chair/ Mobility Aid Lifts:

The vehicle lift has a design load of 800 pounds. However, CobbLinc may deny transportation if carrying the wheelchair and its occupant would be inconsistent with safety requirements. Any passenger may use the lift at any designated stop. Operators are instructed to deploy a lift, at the request of the passenger, to board or exit the vehicle. CobbLinc may refuse to board a passenger on the lift if the lift or vehicle is unable to accommodate the mobility aid and its user, consistent with legitimate safety requirements.

For passenger safety and comfort while traveling on CobbLinc, the following procedures are required:

For safety purposes, CobbLinc recommends that passengers back their wheelchair onto the lift. Forward boarding is allowed. Lock brakes, if applicable, while on the lift. Turn off electric power on the wheelchair. The operator will instruct the passenger when to reengage the power. Please wait for the operator’s assistance and follow instructions when entering or exiting the vehicle.

CobbLinc cannot transport passengers with inoperative mobility devices. All wheelchairs and scooters must be secured. Any passenger refusing to have their wheelchair or scooter secured will not be transported.
