|Cancellation / No Show Policy
Fayette Area Coordinated Transportation’s (FACT) definition of a “no-show” is any time a driver goes to pick up a rider and he/she decides not to use the service or is not at the pick-up site and has not called in to cancel his/her trips at least one (1) hour before the scheduled pick-up time.
Cancellations must be made within the required time frame. In order to avoid a no-show, the rider must cancel their ride at least one hour prior to their scheduled pick-up time.
Riders who fail to cancel their trips will be subject to a service suspension.
Fayette Area Coordinated Transportation will not suspend service on any trips missed by a rider for reasons beyond his or her control, including trips missed due to transit agency error or lateness. Sanctions could be imposed only for a “pattern or practice” of missed trips. A pattern or practice involves intentional, repeated or regular actions, not isolated, accidental, or singular incidents. If a no-show was beyond a rider’s control, contact the FACT office at 724-628-7433.
When a rider is not ready, not present, or chooses not to go and the driver has waited 5 minutes past the scheduled pick-up time, it is considered a “No Show.”
