To schedule a ride with Wheels, please call (859) 233-3433.

Lextran’s ADA Paratransit Service, operated in cooperation with the Bluegrass Chapter of the American Red Cross, is a door‐to‐door public transportation system for disabled citizens of Lexington‐Fayette County. The service is designed for people whose needs cannot be fully met by LexTran’s fixed‐route system due to a disability.

Wheels operates 365 days a year, and has provided safe transportation for Fayette County residents since 1978. Wheels provides more than 165,000 trips annually and travels over one million miles per year. Depending on the origin and destination, a one-way trip costs a rider $1.60 or $2.00 per trip. To register to ride Wheels please call Lextran at (859) 244-2015.

Wheels provides “door-to-door” service, which means drivers will assist passengers from the outside door of the pick-up location to the outside door of the destination. This service is structured to transport multiple passengers on the same bus to multiple destinations.

Hours of Service
Monday – Saturday: 5:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. (Midnight)
Sunday: 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
