Introduction:

Call-A-Bus is a public, ride sharing transportation service of the Central New York Regional Transportation Authority (CNYRTA).

Call-A-Bus is a paratransit service providing origin-to-destination trips to eligible people with disabilities who would otherwise use Centro buses if it were not for their disabilities.

Call-A-Bus is a complementary service as the service area and operation hours match the Centro Bus system.

As an origin-to-destination service, Call-A-Bus routinely provides curb-to-curb service with exterior door-to-exterior door service provided upon advanced notice.

Call-A-Bus is provided under the criteria set forth by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990.


Applying for Call-A-Bus:

Customers must be pre-registered to use the Call-A-Bus service.  Eligibility is based on the functional abilities of the individual.

Applications may be requested by calling your local Call-A-Bus office Monday-Friday or you may download application now:

Call-A-Bus eligibility determinations are good for up to 3 years.  Your eligibility letter will have the expiration date.  You may submit a new application whenever your abilities to travel change.  We may ask you to complete another application if we have reason to believe your abilities have changed.

Attention Applicants:

Call-A-Bus has a new application as of January 2014.  As a convenience to those who have already begun the application process, Call-A-Bus will continue to accept the previous version of the application until March 31, 2014. 

Effective April 1, 2014, only the new application will be accepted.  If you have any questions regarding the application please contact our office at (315) 442-3434.

The Areas of Service:

Call-A-Bus service is available within ¾ miles of the Centro Transit Bus routes.  That means both the origin and destination of each trip must be within a corridor measuring ¾ mile on either side of a bus route.


The Hours of Service:

Call-A-Bus service is available during the hours when Centro Transit Bus service is available. 

If the Centro Transit Bus you would take operates between 6:00am and 6:00pm, then your Call-A-Bus trip must be between 6:00am and 6:00pm. 

If the matching Centro Transit Bus service does not operate on Sundays, then there is no Call-A-Bus service available on Sunday.


Contact Us:

Requests for transportation will be taken by calling you local Call-A-Bus office 7 days-a-week. Requests are taken at least one day in advance, and no more than 14 days before the day you wish to travel.
