About Wheels Paratransit

providers with separate service areas, hours and regulations. This page

For reservations on Wheels Dial-a-Ride, call (925) 455-7510. Wheels ride reservations
are taken between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm, seven days a week. Rides can be reserved
up to 14 days in advance, and as late as the day before the ride is needed.
It's best to make your reservation as soon as possible to ensure you get the time
and trip you want. At
the time the reservation is made, the customer service representative will give
the customer an approximate pick up time. We make every effort to arrive
within 15 minutes (earlier or later) of the scheduled pick-up time. If the
van is expected to be more than 20 minutes late, customer service will notify
the customer. If the van is more than 30 minutes late, the customer will
receive one free ride. Customers
must be ready within five minutes of notice of the van's arrival. If a customer's
medical appointment takes longer than expected, we ask that they notify our dispatcher
to arrange a new pick-up time. We cannot guarantee the desired pick-up time
in this situation. For

To cancel Wheels Dial-A-Ride
reservations, the rider should notify dispatch at 455-7510 as soon as possible,
but at least on hour before their scheduled pick-up time. Customers who
fail to show up for a scheduled ride three times within a six month period will
have their service terminated for one month. A written notice will be sent
before service is terminated.
