CARE On-Demand

Beginning August 1, 2017, CARE customers can benefit from a precedent-setting pilot 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. 

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.

Beginning December 1, 2017, 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.

RoundTrip is a web-based reservation system, where customers can book trips easily and securely through this RoundTrip portal: https://www.rideroundtrip.com/grtc/

RoundTrip is also actively working on a mobile app option.

For customers requiring or preferring phone assistance, please call RoundTrip at 1-877-396-8080.

RoundTrip Service Hours:
Monday to Friday from 7AM to 7PM
Saturday from 9AM to 5PM

(These service hours may expand during the pilot program).

Customers may begin booking the last week of November 2017 for RoundTrip trips effective December 1, 2017 and beyond. Please book at least two hours in advance.


UZURV is another CARE On-Demand option, where customers can call to schedule trips at least two hours in advance with the UZURV Call Center at (804)-499-3400.
Call Center Hours: Monday to Friday from 7AM to 5PM

UZURV is also actively working on a mobile app for CARE customers.

UZURV Service Hours: Monday to Friday from 7AM to 6PM
(These service hours may expand during the pilot program).
