How to Schedule Your Ride

Once your application has been processed and approved, you may call the BCT Reservation Department to schedule your ride between 7:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. All requests for service are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. All rides must be scheduled a minimum of two (2) business days in advance of your planned trip.

Information You Will Need to Provide When Scheduling Your Ride:

Your complete name and address including building name/number, street name, house or apartment number.

Your telephone number and cell phone number if you have one.

The date of your trip.

The complete address of your destination (including location of any specific entrance) and telephone number.

You may schedule a single, multiple or ‘subscription’ trip. (Subscription trips are repeat trips that are automatically added to the schedule for the same day, time and destination each week).

Your drop off/appointment time and the time you will be ready to return.

After scheduling your ride, you will be given an estimated time of vehicle arrival for your pick-up and your return.

Our vehicles are considered “on-time” if they arrive within fifteen (15) minutes of the estimated time given.

The reservationist must be made aware of any special needs, (i.e., a vehicle with a wheelchair lift; if an escort will be accompanying you on your trip; if you have a service animal; or any additional special needs you may require).

*When using our services, it is important to ensure that your mobility device is in the same working condition in which it was approved so that you are able to board our vehicles safely and without issue.  Here at BCT, we take your safety very seriously. To help ensure the safety of our clients and staff, we require that only approved devices be used.
