Center for Students with Disabilities

Adaptive Transportation

Adaptive Transportation Services began in the fall of 1971 as a service for UW-Whitewater students with mobility impairments. The service is provided through the university as a fee based service. Students who are consumers of vocational rehabilitation services may request assistance with funding the cost of this service as part of their plan for employment. Students who do not have third-party funding will be required to pay for the service in full. The primary goal of Adaptive Transportation services is to provide safe and efficient service to our student riders. We offer both academic and non-academic services with a variety of scheduling options.

CSD Adaptive Transportation Policy

CSD Adaptive Transportation (Warhawk Wheels) is designed to provide accessible on-campus transportation for students with disabilities. Warhawk Wheels may be able to provide transportation for field placements that are a part of your academic program. This is decided on a case-by-case basis and is dependent on van availability, location of field placement, and timeliness of request.

If you think you might need transportation assistance, we recommend you start the process for securing your field placement at least a semester in advance. As soon as you have any information regarding your transportation needs for field placement, follow these steps:

  • Contact the Transportation Coordinator
    • Include dates and times of rides needed (e.g., every Tuesday and Thursday at 7:30am and 3:45pm for the whole semester
    • Location of placement
