Capital Metro and Yellow Cab Team Up for Access-A-Ride Service

Access-a-Ride is a new premium, on-demand service provided by Yellow Cab. It’s available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to certified Capital MetroAccess customers, including those using nontransferable mobility devices. After paying an initial enrollment fee of $5, participants receive an Access-a-Ride stored value card to which they may add funds each month. For every $5 a participant puts on the card, Capital Metro will add an additional $15 to the account, up to a maximum monthly total of $80.

Access-a-Ride is a cost-shared service supported by Capital Metro, but is not part of the ADA-mandated paratransit program. For more information, visit the website here.
