scheduling a ride

After you have registered, you can schedule a ride by calling 1-888-795-0740. Transportation is available Monday through Friday between 6am and 6pm (Saturday, Sunday and evenings available through special arrangement). Transportation outside of Bucks County may be limited to certain days/times. Please call 1-888-795-0740 for details.

Please schedule your ride at least 48 hours in advance. If you are calling exactly two days in advance, please call by 2:30pm so we have enough time to get you scheduled. Please schedule your pick-up time for at least one hour before your actual appointment time. Our vehicles are considered "on time" if arriving within 30 minutes before or after scheduled pick-up times, as well as arriving within 30 minutes after a scheduled return time. Please plan your trip accordingly.

When scheduling, we will need:
- the complete address of your destination (including location of any specific entrance) and phone number
- information on any special needs (i.e. a wheelchair lift, if an escort will be with passenger, etc.)

cancelling a ride

To cancel a ride, please call 215-794-5556 at least 2 hours before your scheduled pick-up time. If a rider cancels 2 consecutive weeks of "Standing Order" trips, the "Standing Order" will be inactivated and the rider must reschedule any trips at least 2 days in advance. ("Standing Order" trips are repeat trips that are automatically added to the schedule for the same day, time and destination each week).

If a rider fails to cancel a trip at least 2 hours before the scheduled pick-up time, this is considered a "no-show". Riders with 3 consecutive "no-shows" or 5 total "no-shows" in a month may be suspended from transportation for 1 month. If that rider has another "no-show" after a suspension, they will be permanently remove from the shared ride program.

Assistance/Escorts

Basic service is curb-to-curb, and drivers will assist passengers on and off the vehicle if so noted upon registration, or if requested at time of scheduling. If door-to-door service is required, you may need an escort. Escorts are permitted to ride free of charge when a document from your medical provider is on file with BCT stating that the rider requires assistance to travel.
