When can I ride?

You can ride the Free Shuttle Monday-Friday from 6am-10am and 3pm-7pm.

I am a wheelchair passenger. Do you have vans that can accommodate me?

If you need a wheelchair accessible vehicle, please make sure to toggle on the “Wheelchair Accessible” option in your account profile. When booking a wheelchair-accessible ride, we will direct you to call our live support number. Our agents will be able to book a ride with a local provider on your behalf.

What safety measures are in place?

  • We’re using in-app wellness checks to make sure riders and drivers are symptom-free and ready to ride before they get going — this probably goes without saying, but please stay home if you’re not feeling well!
  • While we manage vehicle capacity in accordance with social distancing guidelines, we’d love your help — always enter through the rear doors, and in vehicles with automatic doors, please wait for the driver to open and close the door.
  • In line with CDC guidance, a mask or face covering is required onboard for riders and drivers alike, so think of it as your favorite new accessory, the one you can’t leave the house without. If you forget it, your driver can provide one for you.
  • We’re advising drivers to wipe down their vehicles regularly with EPA-approved supplies. We’re also installing plastic partitions in all vehicles.
