Use of Portable Oxygen

The ADA provides that transportation service must be provided to a rider who needs to bring along an oxygen bottle. For safety reasons, it is the policy of NWTHRA to require the rider to maintain control of the oxygen bottle. If the rider cannot pull an oxygen bottle cart or carry or maintain control of the bottle by himself or herself, then the rider shall provide a Personal Care Attendant to perform those functions. When choosing to ride public transportation, it is the responsibility of the rider to select a size oxygen bottle they can manage.
