How far in advance should I book my ride?

Booking requests may be made seven days in advance, and up to three hours before the end of service on the day before the preferred day of travel. Same day service is subject to availability.

Does my attendant have to pay?

If a passenger cannot be left safely unattended on the vehicle and/or at their drop off location, they must be accompanied by an Attendant. A friend or relative who wishes to travel with a Mobility Services passenger, may do so provided a seat is available when the booking is made. Attendants and companions must pay the appropriate fare and must be able to board the vehicle without assistance from the driver.
