Transportation Assistance Program (TAP)
Individuals with disabilities struggle to access their communities due to a lack of transportation. This barrier hinders independence, health, mental well-being and more, causing disparity among the disabled population.
We want to help!
BIANK has created a program to assist with accessing and supplementing the cost of reliable transportation within the NKY community.
NKY Specialized Transportation
The Regional Area Mobility Program (RAMP) is a door-to-door paratransit service available to disabled citizens who are unable to use TANK’s fixed route bus service. RAMP serves the areas of Boone, Campbell, and Kenton counties in Northern Kentucky, which are also served by TANK’s fixed route system. Large print and or recorded schedules are available upon request from RAMP.
RAMP provides safe and accessible door-to-door service, regulated and state-operated, evening and weekend operation hours, unrestricted destinations, open use.
Some of the benefits of RAMP include:
Door-to-door rides provided by an accessible bus
$2.50 or $5 rides depending on location
Pre-scheduled rides with 30-minute windows
