DOT Paratransit Van 

DOT is the City of Alexandria's specialized transportation service for residents of the City of Alexandria and visitors who cannot use regular transit buses or rail due to their disability. Accommodations are made for visitors with disabilities for a cumulative 21 day period, during a 365 day period beginning with the visitor's first use of service during the 365 day period. Visitors must present documentation that they are eligible to receive ADA paratransit services in the jurisdiction in which they reside. You may contact the Paratransit Coordinator at 703-746-4079 to arrange complementary paratransit service. Trips are provided by taxicabs and wheelchair accessible vans. DOT provides service throughout the City of Alexandria, City of Falls Church, Arlington County, Fairfax County and Fairfax City.
