CAB BUS. We refer to our shared-ride demand response system as the Call-a-Bus. This service is a curb-to-curb service that must be pre-arranged through our Mobility Management Call Center. Pre-registered clients can arrange for a single trip or multiple trips when they call.
Fares are based on the number of zones traveled from one destination to another.
The base fare for the local Call-a-Bus is $3.50. Each additional zone traveled is $1.00. This fare is kept lower than County-Wide fares because the opportunities to group rides to make it more cost effective is greater.
