  • Diamond Ride participants receive a total of thirty (30) one-way trips each month.
  • Transportation service is available 7 days a week, including holidays, from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
  • Travel to medical facilities outside the regular service hours (7:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.) is allowed only when special circumstances apply, such as fixed dialysis appointments.
  • Riders may schedule trips the same day, no advance reservations are required.


  • Requesting specific drivers when reserving a trip is not allowed.
  • Participants must have valid Diamond Ride ID Card when traveling.
  • Participants are able to travel with a companion or guest, at no additional charge.
  • Participants are encouraged to share rides; it saves trips, money, and allows more individuals to take advantage of the service.(Example: If you and two of your friends are going shopping or to a restaurant, it counts as only one trip and you pay only one regular fare. At least two must be card holders with third riding as companion.)
