New Dispatch Hours
Starting January 2, 2018, our new dispatch call service hours will be Monday – Friday, 7am – 5pm. Please note our call center will be closed on Saturdays & Sundays.
Winter Weather Notice
During inclement weather, RIDES, in general, will follow the lead of the local school districts for delaying or canceling service. When schools have been dismissed for holidays, vacations or other purposes, RIDES will decide when the inclement weather warrants delaying or canceling service. Cancellation of services will be announced via local radio stations and posted online via our website and social media.
