Cancellations cause unnecessary delays to the overall operation of the Paratransit System. If you have to cancel a trip, you must call as soon as possible before the scheduled pickup time. If you call after business hours, please leave your name, telephone number and scheduled trip information on the answering machine. Three or more un-cancelled appointments (no-shows) within a 30 day period will result in the suspension of your transportation privileges for 14 days. You will be charged the $3 fare for all trips you fail to cancel in advance. Severe weather conditions may force cancellation of service.
