Service is provided Monday through Friday, with hours of operation beginning at 8:00 a.m. and continuing to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Vehicles will be picking up passengers from curbside to curbside.
Passengers are required to call dispatch 24-48 hours in advance to schedule a trip. It is in the client’s best interest to call in 48 hours in advance, especially if they have a time deadline, such as a doctor’s appointment or need to report to their place of employment. The system currently operates with 2 (two) 12 passenger boxcar and 1 (one) 12-passenger van. Our boxcars are wheelchair accessible.
Drivers provide assistance to passengers with disabilities as needed to board the vehicle and secure their wheelchair or other equipment (walkers, oxygen bottles, etc.) as needed. Service is provided within the Nogales city limits. There is no fee charged for these services, though a $1.00 donation is encouraged.
