This research will examine privacy legal issues in public transportation and paratransit services arising from HIPPA and other privacy laws. Public Transportation, including paratransit services, especially ADA paratransit services, maintain extensive records about their clients. These include: application materials filed by clients or their health professionals during the eligibility process; records created during the review of these applications; and databases, updated as service is provided, which record customers' destinations including clinics, hospitals, doctors offices, and dialysis centers.
