"NO SHOW" Policy - Space on ADA transportation is limited and the service is costly to provide. "No Shows" occur when the rider is not ready, forgets, fails to call and cancel in advance or refuses their ride when the driver arrives. If 3 no shows accumulate in a sixty 60 day period, a 30 day  will result. Once reinstated if an additional 3 no shows occur within another sixty 60 days the suspension will be extended to 45 days. After the third infraction of 3 no shows the suspension is for sixty 60 days. If an individual continues to misuse the program, a reinstatement fee may be charged. Please be courteous to others.
