Method/Rules for Scheduling a Ride

However, if using SMART paratransit / ADA Service, passengers are permitted to reserve a trip up to 14 days in advance of the trip date.  SMART will accept any trip request if made before 4 p.m. the previous day, but the sooner you call, the better time you will receive.  Same-day trip requests will not be accepted.  You may reserve your SMART ADA trip by calling 866-962-5515. First press 1, then 2 for ADA, then 1 to schedule.  For passengers who are deaf or hard of hearing, call the relay service toll-free by dialing either 711 or 1-800-649-3777.  You may also email your ride request to:
