Cancellations must be made at least 90 minutes before the scheduled pickup time so that drivers’ schedules can be adjusted. Rides that are canceled within less than 90 minutes advance-cancellation requirements will be marked as no-shows.

Wheelchairs and Other Mobility Devices

Customers may bring aboard mobility devices such as canes, walkers, wheelchairs, etc. CATA will transport any mobility device as long as the combined weight is within the allowable limitation, dimensions and design load of the vehicle.
