Para-Bus[edit]

People who are physically unable to board a conventional transit bus or cannot walk a distance of more than 175 metres are eligible to use the Para-Bus service, which is operated by the Physically Handicapped Adults' Rehabilitation Association (PHARA) on behalf of the city. Those who are eligible must be registered to make use of this service.

Although North Bay Transit's newer buses are assessable, PHARA operates a fleet of minibuses to provide more seating for those with physical disabilities.
