Follow these steps to reserve your trip using The LINK:

  • Call as early as you can – at least one day in advance to ensure The LINK can provide your trip. The LINK may be able to serve a same-day trip request but cannot guarantee availability.
  • When you call to request a ride, The LINK will provide you with a 30-minute pick-up window.

For example:

For an appointment at 9:00 a.m., The LINK will pick you up between 8:15 – 8:45 a.m. to make sure you arrive at your appointment on time.
The LINK will pick you up minutes after your appointment ends.

Please note: other passengers may be riding the bus with you to different destinations and there may be stops before you reach your destination.

Also, The LINK operates lift-equipped buses to serve customers who require the use of a wheelchair or have difficulty negotiating steps.
