  • Dispatch begins taking calls at 8:30 a.m. and takes last call at 4 p.m. Last call for rides 15+ miles out of town is 2 p.m. to ensure adequate drive time.

  • Driving time begins by 8:45 a.m. and ends by 4:30 p.m. This ensures drivers have enough time to do daily required vehicle maintenance.

  • No calls will be taken between 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. due to employee lunch break.

  • If you are calling at the time of last call being taken, transit expects it to be your last ride of the day. No additional stops or calls will be taken so that the driver may finish their shift by 5 p.m


  • If you no longer need a ride after you’ve called one in, please be sure to call and cancel with us so we can move on to our next passenger.

  • For scheduled appointment rides, please give us a cancellation notice on the business day that is before the scheduled day of the ride.

  • If a passenger has a record of 3 no shows for a scheduled ride, that rider will no longer be able to ride with UKB Transit for failing to follow UKB Transit Cancel Policy.
