ADA Access Reservations

Schedulers will offer certified Access riders the best available times based on availability. To accommodate all ride requests, schedulers may offer a trip up to one hour before or one hour after your requested time. For example, if you request a 10:00 a.m. pick-up and that time is not available, you may be offered a trip as early as 9:00 a.m. or as late as 11:00 a.m.

Access passengers will not be kept on board a vehicle for more than one hour.

Access riders may travel to a second location during a scheduled trip. This is known as a 10-minute stop. A 10-minute stop must be scheduled at the time the regular trip is scheduled. Only one 10-minute stop is allowed for each scheduled trip. There will be an additional fare charged for the 10-minute stop.

Note: Passengers will be held responsible for all trips scheduled or cancelled by a third party and any penalties that may be incurred.
