All trips are scheduled on a first come, first serve call in basis. Demand response trips are trips where the rider calls for service each time a trip is desired. These requests must be received at least two days prior to the requested trip. Same day requests will be honored on a first come-first serve, space available basis.
Subscription services are recurring trips that the rider is not required to call in each time services are needed. These trips are scheduled on a weekly basis. Due to the high volume of requsts, WPPT maintains a waiting list for subscription trips when space is not available to accommodate a riders request.
Drivers provide minimal assistance to passengers boarding vehicles. If you require additional or special assistance you should have an attendant accompany you on trips. Children age 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
