Other private pay to ride services available on the internet.
Uber is a technology platform. Our smartphone apps connect driver-partners and riders. In cities where Uber operates, use your rider app to request a ride. When a nearby driver-partner accepts your request, your app displays an estimated time of arrival for the driver-partner heading to your pickup location. Your app notifies you when the driver-partner is about to arrive. Your app also provides info about the driver-partner with whom you will ride, including first name, vehicle type, and license plate number. This info helps the two of you connect at your pickup location. Use your app to enter your preferred destination anytime before or during the ride. If you have a preferred route, it’s helpful to talk through the directions together. When you arrive at your destination and exit the vehicle, your trip ends. Your fare is automatically calculated and charged to the payment method you’ve linked to your Uber account.
The Capital Area Transportation Authority(CATA) service includes the cities of Lansing and East Lansing and the townships of Delhi, Lansing and Meridian. For these areas there are fixed routes. CATA also has a service called SpecTran. Spec-Tran is CATA’s Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) complementary paratransit service for people unable to use CATA’s fixed-route system. This is an advance reservation, curb-to-curb service that uses small lift-equipped buses and vans to transport customers.
Spec-Tran operates seven days a week during the same hours as CATA’s fixed-route service. Spec-Tran eligibility is currently certified through the Disability Network Capital Area. Spec-Tran customers must be certified in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The one-way fare is $2.50.
