HELPFUL TIPS
 
Driver arrival
 
Upon his arrival, the driver will ring your doorbell and mention your name. If you are in a multi-unit building (high-rise apartment, residence, office tower, etc.), we ask that you wait in the lobby.
 
The driver is not authorized to use an elevator or the inside stairs to pick you up or to bring you back to your floor. If you are in a public place, you must wait in the area indicated at the time of  your reservation and make sure you are visible to the driver. If there are several doors to the building, make sure to specify the exact location when placing your reservation.
 
Pick-up time

Picture 30 minutes pick-up time

The Dispatch Centre always confirms a 30-minute time slot for a pick-up.

Be ready at the beginning of this period so as not to delay or miss your boarding, and thus penalize other guests.

The driver is not authorized to wait for you or change your reservation.

 
Arrival at the destination
 
The arrival time slot will be within 30 minutes of your requested time. For example, if you request an 8:00 a.m. arrival, your arrival time will take place between  7:30 a.m. and  8:00 a.m. Specific times cannot be guaranteed.
  
You are responsible for checking the operating hours of your destination to make sure it is open at the start of your arrival time slot.
 
 
Help provided by the driver
 
This is limited to the assistance required to get you in and out of the vehicle. You can depend on the driver’s help for the following :
Make sure you know in advance the accessibility status of the buildings you will be visiting.

If you use a manual wheelchair and there is no access ramp, or if there are more than three (3) consecutive steps to go up, you must be able to clear this obstacle on your own or with the help of someone other than the driver.

If you are wheelchair bound, an access ramp is required at the origin and destination.

Maintenance of building entrances and exits
 

Building entrances and exits must be kept free of snow and ice in winter, otherwise the trip may be cancelled unless you are able to get to the vehicle on your own.

 

 
 
Use of a manual wheelchair
 
If you use a manual wheelchair and you take a standard taxi, you must
be able to transfer from your wheelchair to the taxi seat without help from the driver or an attendant.

The driver will place the wheelchair in the trunk. If you are unable to do so, your trips will always have to be by minibus or wheelchair-accessible taxi.
