CARE On-Demand

CARE customers can benefit from a precedent-setting program with greater flexibility in meeting their mobility needs. "CARE On-Demand" enables CARE customers the option to utilize a same-day, direct, non-stop trip. CARE On-Demand is an optional program open to CARE customers; CARE customers are not required to use CARE On-Demand. However, you must first qualify for CARE to be eligible to utilize CARE On-Demand.

Schedule your trip at least two hours in advance. Trips can also be scheduled farther in advance with greater flexibility. You will need your CARE ID number for booking and your CARE ID when riding.

CARE customers can choose from two CARE On-Demand partners, Roundtrip and UZURV. With two partners, there are two easy ways to use CARE On-Demand!

With Roundtrip, you can save time by booking trips easily and securely online or through our app.  

Book your on-demand ride here or 

by phone at 1-877-396-8080.

Your on-demand ride will pick you up within minutes of booking!

Roundtrip Service Hours:
7 days a week from 7AM to 11PM

*To cover premium pricing from our transport providers, there is a $1 surcharge for rides commencing between 8PM-6:30AM, 7 days/week.

UZURV provides private, same day, direct, non-stop, door-to-door service with highly trained, ADA-compliant drivers and vehicles that match your specific needs.
