The PwD Program is funded through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. It is a statewide program that provides affordable, accessible transportation for persons with disabilities.
There are additional regulations that govern the program that may not be included in this brochure. Additional information will be explained during the application process. This program only pays for trips that are not covered by other programs.
The goal of the PwD Program is to provide a shared ride service at a reduced fare for persons aged 18 to 64. The program is available to those living in Indiana County who need transportation to or from an area not served by existing transportation services, such as, fixed routes.
The PwD Program is only required to be a curb-to-curb service, however, IndiGO believes in assisting all clients door-todoor. IndiGO is never permitted to enter any private home, but the operator will wait at the door for the clients. IndiGO will assist all clients into the main waiting areas at medical facilities. For return trips, IndiGO will come into the main waiting area to eliminate having to wait outside.
