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 On-Demand partner UZURV makes it easy to use CARE On-Demand!

Effective July 1, Roundtrip is not accepting CARE On-Demand trips. Any reservations made prior to June 30 will be honored through July 15, 2023. CARE Customers can book on-demand trips via UZURV or regular paratransit services from CARE and CARE Plus. For assistance, call 804-782-CARE (2273).

With UZURV, you get a private ride with a courteous, credentialed, ADA-compliant driver in a vehicle matched to your specific needs. The ride is a direct, non-stop, door-to-door service. Rides can be booked in as little as 60 minutes ahead of time.

Eligible riders can use UZURV’s direct line call center or the UZURV Ride App to schedule rides,
manage reservations, track trips, and favorite drivers. The app is WCAG 2.1 AA Certified for
accessibility and ease of use.
