General Rules

  • Schedule Requirements – All passengers must make reservation to ride by 1:00 pm one business day prior to the day of their request
  • Cancellation Requirements – If you need to cancel your reservation for any reason, you must call to cancel at least one hour prior to your reservation time (please leave a message if no one answers). If you do not cancel, you will be counted as a no show.
  • No Shows – The vehicle will wait for five minutes for the passenger to board the vehicle. If the passenger cancels once the vehicle arrives, does not call to cancel their reservation or does not board the vehicle within the allotted time, the passenger will be marked as a no show. If the passenger receives three no shows, they will be suspended from transportation for 30 days.
  • Require One-Hour Window – Lenoir County Transit requires a one-hour window for reservations within Lenoir County. If your arrival time is at 9:00 am, you must be ready for pick up at 8:00 am.


“No-Show” Policy

  • The vehicle will wait for five minutes for the passenger to approach the vehicle for boarding.  If the passenger(s) are not ready when the vehicle arrives, the vehicle will leave and a “No-Show” trip is documented.  If you receive three “No-Shows”, you will be suspended from transportation for 30 days.  This applies to ALL passengers.  You must call to cancel your trip at least one hour prior to your pick up time to avoid a “No-Show”.
