ADA Certification Process

Requirements


ADA regulations require an administrative process for individuals to request to be evaluated for ADA eligibility.

Process


Upon receiving a request for an ADA application, Battle Creek Transit will provide an Application (PDF) and an Authorization of Physician or Health Care Provider Release of Information Form (PDF) to the applicant.

Upon completion of the application, the applicant should mail the application to: 
Mallory Avis, Transit Director
Battle Creek Transit
339 West Michigan Avenue
Battle Creek, MI 49037

The Battle Creek Transit Director will make the eligibility determination.

Approval


If eligibility is granted, the Transit Director will send the applicant an approval letter with information about Battle Creek Transit’s complimentary paratransit service. If eligibility is denied, the Transit Director will send the applicant a denial letter with information on the appeals process.

If Battle Creek Transit has not made an eligibility determination within 21 days of receipt of the application, Battle Creek transit will grant presumptive eligibility to the applicant.

Battle Creek Transit will keep a log and file of all ADA applications.
