Booking trips

Para Transpo trips must be reserved in advance. Please contact us one day before you plan to travel, or consider making a regular booking for trips which occur the same time on the same day each week.

Casual bookings can be scheduled every 15 mins, starting at the top of the hour. Request a pick-up time that is at least one hour before you want to arrive at your destination, or one and a half hours for rural trips.

Regular bookings or recurring trips are those that occur on the same day and time each week (or bi-weekly or monthly) for at least one month. To set these up, contact us at least two days before the bookings begin. Once they are set up, you must use these bookings unchanged at least 75 % of the time. Otherwise, you will be contacted to discuss your regular bookings.
