Method/Rules for Scheduling a Ride

Transit riders can call, text, email, or book their trip online by using the RouteMatch portal.

  • Phone number to call or text to schedule: (989) 269-2121
  • Email to schedule:

The amount of notice you must give to schedule a ride is based on the following priorities:

  • PRIORITY ONE – Wheelchairs: any wheelchair-bound person shall have top priority for the first available, lift-equipped vehicle in their area, according to modes and available schedules.
  • PRIORITY TWO – Special Reservations: services, established in advance, to serve the same passenger, with the same origin(s) and destination(s) at the same time of every weekday.
  • PRIORITY THREE – Normal Reservations: services that are reserved at least twenty-four (24) hours in advance of service need.
  • PRIORITY FOUR – Demand Response Reservations: passengers who call HTC/TAT at least one (1) hour in advance of their service need.
  • PRIORITY FIVE – On Demand: passengers who call less than one (1) hour in advance of their service need. While HTC/TAT recognizes its role of providing demand-actuated, responsive, transit, “last minute” requests for service place additional burdens on resources, flexibility and HTC/TAT’s need to serve transit-dependent passengers who place requests as early as possible. Consequently, HTC/TAT will ensure that the needs of Wheelchair and Reserved Ride passengers are fully met before addressing the needs of On Demand passengers.
