Estimated Time of Arrival

On the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) tab, you can find real-time information for the next trip. The ETA tab updates automatically every 30 seconds with the following information:

  • Estimated minutes until pickup or drop-off
  • Scheduled pickup or drop-off time if estimated time is unavailable
  • Map of vehicle location, predicted vehicle route, intermediary stops, and destination

Scheduled Trips

On the Scheduled tab, find a list of scheduled trips that are not in-progress or cancelled. From here, you can also select and cancel trips that are not scheduled to occur within the next two hours. For those trips needing to be cancelled that are scheduled within the next two hours, you will need to call Access-a-Ride.

Booking Trips

On the Book tab, you can book a trip to/from any of your favorite locations. Your home address is always included in this list by default. To book a trip, please provide a date, time, origin, destination, attendant count, attendant mobility type, guest count, and guest mobility type. Additionally, there are certain criteria that must be met when booking a trip.

  • Date – The trip can only be booked 2-5 days out
  • Origin & Destination – The origin and destination must be different
  • Attendant – Attendant count can only be set to “1” if attendant has been approved for the customer
  • Duplication – The trip must not already exist, which can be checked under the “Scheduled” tab

  • Certification – Your certification must not be expired
  • Trip Overlap – The pickup and drop-off windows of the requested trip must not overlap the pickup and drop-off windows of any scheduled trips
  • Fixed Route Equivalent – The trip can only be booked if there is equivalent fixed route service available for the requested date, time, origin, and destination
