The travel time of an A-Ride trip is comparable to the same trip if
made by regular fixed route bus. Pickup times may also be negotiated
within one hour before or after the requested time. The reservationist
will give you a pickup time and the expected Be-Ready window your ride
will arrive within.
Advance reserved trips arrive within a tentative 30 minute Be-Ready
window from your scheduled pickup time. Please be ready to board your
ride during this time. If your ride has not arrived within 30 minutes
from your scheduled pickup time call A-Ride for assistance.
For Same-Day trips and Will-Call Return trips, the Be-Ready window is 45 minutes from your pickup time.
Please be prepared to leave when your ride arrives. Riders who do not
board the vehicle when it arrives delay service for other passengers.
In these cases the driver can only wait up to 5 minutes before moving on
to their next trip.
On-Board Travel Times
Travel times vary based on trip distance, traffic, time of day and
weather conditions. The below table shows expected travel times. If you
need to arrive by a specific time consider your Be-Ready window and
travel time when planning your trip. If you’re unsure, tell us, the
reservationist will attempt to give you a pickup time that will get you
to your appointment on time.
