Cancelations & No Shows
To cancel your ride, call 828-632-1112 at least one hour before your pick-up time. Otherwise, you will be considered a "no show." The driver will wait 5 minutes after your scheduled pick-up time. If, after 5 minutes, you do not show, you will be considered a "no show" and the driver will leave. Your return trip may be cancelled. Three "no shows" could result in suspended or denied service. A fee may be charged before service can be accessed for future reservations.
