How to catch a Fixed-route Bus:
You can catch the Fixed-route Bus at any bus stop. The bus stops are listed on the schedules or flag the Fixed-route Bus down anywhere along the route where it is safe for the bus to stop. If you plan to flag the bus down, it’s a good idea to give our dispatcher a call so we can alert the driver to look for you.
If you are certified as disabled under the American with Disabilities Act, and live within ¾ mile off the route, you can request that the bus deviate to pick you up at your curb for twice the cost of the fare. Simply call our dispatcher to arrange for deviation.
