Community Transit
(demand response)

An origin to destination system where passenger trips are generated by calls from passengers or their agent at least twenty-four (24) hours in advance, to the Transit Reservationists, who then schedule a vehicle to pick up the passenger. Reservations are accepted up to two weeks in advance.

The demand response system is for individuals who cannot access the fixed route service due to some disability. Eligibility for this system is required.
