  • If the ADA accommodation area is not available, parents/guardians must fold the stroller and accommodate their children, in their laps while seated.
  • If ADA accessible seating is not in use, bus seats can be folded up to accommodate the stroller. Strollers are permitted in this space and must be stored in that area.
  • Older adults and passengers in a personal mobility device (meeting ADA requirements), will take priority over all strollers, except when that stroller is an accommodation for a child with a disability.

  • Child remains secured in stroller with all belts and harnesses, as equipped.
  • Stroller must not block passenger ingress and egress/passenger aisle cannot be blocked by stroller.
  • Fairfax Connector Operators may deploy the wheelchair ramp if requested, so all passengers, including children in strollers can board safely. 
  • Fairfax Connector operators will maintain the discretion to direct strollers be moved or folded, if they determine it is compromising the safety of other passengers.  
  • Fairfax Connector Operators are not required to lift, push, or handle strollers.
