Kingsport Area Transit Service will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act by offering half-price Dial-A-Ride ticket books for $12.00 (which includes 24 tickets per book) for the entire month of November.

The 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act is a time to reflect on a law that has made a positive impact on the lives of people with disabilities in our country. This anniversary is also a time to set goals and expectations for the future in order to create equal opportunities for disabled individuals. Upon passage in 1990, Congress clearly stated its intent to ensure equality of opportunity, full participation, independent living and economic self-sufficiency for individuals with disabilities. All KATS vehicles are equipped with ADA lifts and ramps to support and ensure this accessibility. The Dial-A-Ride van service is an affordable, reliable, safe and efficient way for Kingsport residents to travel to numerous destinations. Eligibility requirements apply.

“We want to thank our current Dial-A-Ride customers through this promotion, as well as attract new riders who can benefit greatly from the Dial-A-Ride service,” said Transit Director Chris Campbell. “This is definitely a situation where spending a little money up front will save a lot of money over time as these tickets do not expire.”

The Dial-A-Ride half-price ticket book promotion has become a popular annual event. Tickets may be purchased at the KATS downtown terminal, located at 900 East Main Street, via cash, check, credit or debit. Tickets may also be purchased directly from the drivers. Cash and checks are the only form of payment accepted on the vehicles. Drivers do not carry cash and cannot make change.
