Beginning this year (2023) we are asking all residents/passengers who have scheduled a ride to expect a confirmation phone call one or two days prior to your appointment. If, however you do not hear from us, please call the day before your appointment (before 3pm) to confirm that you are on our schedule.

 

As always, we ask that you be ready and waiting for the driver one hour prior to your appointment time. Because this is a ride sharing service, the drivers often need to be at different locations for pick-ups and drop-offs, and may have to bring you early to your appointment.

 

Once again, thank you for your patience and cooperation.
