Metro Call‑A‑Ride service is available, with advance reservations, to individuals with disabilities that prevent them from using the accessible, fixed-route transit services (MetroLink and MetroBus). You’ll share your ride with other passengers in modern, wheelchair-accessible vehicles.
Priority reservation scheduling is provided to customers with disabilities who qualify for Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) paratransit services.
Please note that while the Metro Call‑A‑Ride service is a great benefit to passengers who cannot use MetroBus and MetroLink, it is not a direct service. You will be sharing the service with other passengers. We encourage all passengers to explore all of the available Metro transit options that may provide a quicker or more direct journey.
To determine the type of service available to you, please take a look at our Accessibility and Independence Guide on our ADA Services page for more information.
