HOW DO I GET A RIDE?
Appointments for rides are taken Monday thru Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. by 785-772-1053. We schedule vehicles and drivers today to meet the demand for rides tomorrow. To assure a ride, it is advisable to book your trip as far ahead as possible up to two weeks in advance. All requests for out-of-county rides should schedule at least 24 hours in advance. We can schedule rides for you up to two weeks in advance. Rides are not guaranteed until confirmed by the scheduler.
For situations when you need a return ride but you can’t be sure of the time the ride will be needed (such as for doctor’s appointments), we will schedule you for a “will call” ride. You call the dispatcher when you are ready to be picked up. All call-ins must be received by the office no later than 5:00 p.m.
