DATS is a door-to-door public transportation service for Edmontonians who cannot use regular transit for some or all of their travel needs, due to a physical or cognitive impairment.
DATS is a shared-ride public transportation service operating within the City of Edmonton corporate limits. Wheelchair lift equipped vehicles, minivans, accessible minivans, taxis and vans are used to provide DATS service. Vehicles used are clearly identified as "DATS" vehicles.
