To book a ride during dial-a-ride hours, call 1-844-667-5327 at least an hour before your trip. Customer service representatives will help you book trips and provide the best available travel plans. A YRT- /Viva-marked vehicle will drop you off at the stop you asked for within the area. However, you may have to wait as long as an hour to allow the dial-a-ride vehicle to complete other trips. Dial-a-Ride service operates first-come, first-served.

Regular YRT / Viva fares apply. The driver can accept all YRT / Viva fare media including the PRESTO fare-card, tickets, passes, and exact change. He or she will also issue a transfers if you ask for one. (PRESTO is only available on dial-a-ride for Routes 32 and 84 only.)
