Getting Around

Public Transportation

Are you needing a more specialized service? The City of Huntsville’s 19 Access vehicles are radio dispatched and ADA accessible. Access is a specialized, door-to-door, demand-response paratransit service. An ADA Paratransit service application and reservations made in advance by 5 p.m. the day before are required to schedule this service.

If you are certified for paratransit service in another city, you may use the Access service for 21 days over a 365 day period. Proof of out-of-town certification is required and may be emailed to Access@HuntsvilleAL.gov, or faxed to (256) 427-6869, or mailed to Access, 500 B Church Street NW, Huntsville, Alabama 35801.

Rental Cars, Taxis, Uber & Lyft

  • Rental cars - Major rental car companies offer adapted vehicles upon request. Confirmation with the rental company 2-3 days prior to travel dates is advised.
  • Taxis - Most taxi companies offer vans or specialized vehicles. Calling ahead to confirm availability is recommended.
  • Uber & Lyft - #iHeartHsv blogger Taylor Burton offers a special tip for those using rideshare apps like Uber or Lyft: "The Uber and Lyft apps have more options if you are in a larger market. In Huntsville, what I would do is seek out an Uber XL (larger capacity vehicle) just to ensure that there’s storage space for my chair once I transfer into the vehicle."
