Ride reservations placed a day or more in advance are encouraged and receive priority. Same day service is scheduled on a first come, first serve basis and we will fit you into the schedule whenever possible although it may not be your first preference for time. Same day cannot be guaranteed. If you are needing transport to or from the airport it should be scheduled with a minimum of 24 hours notice.

Due to ridership demand the bus may run 10 minutes early or up to 10 minutes late, so please be prepared early and be patient if we are a little late. There may also be other riders on the bus who need to be dropped at their destination so you may have to ride for a while. Please plan your trip accordingly to prepare for delays, we recommend 15-30 minutes prior to your appointment time.

When you make an appointment, dispatch will need the following information:

• Name
• Address to be picked up from
• Time and date of desired pick up
• Destination or destinations if more than one stop
• If you need assistance such as the lift for a wheelchair or walker


Please call dispatch to cancel any reservation if you no longer require a scheduled ride. This saves us time, keeps us on schedule and enables someone else to take that time slot if needed.
