Harris County RIDES is a curb-to-curb subsidized Transportation program that allows seniors citizens, people with disabilities, low-income residents to purchase transportation services at a significant discount of 50% of the total trip cost. Each customer may select from two levels of service: Shared Ride or Taxi Service .
Shared Ride This non-metered program in which passengers share rides with other passengers requires advance reservations. Of the two, this is the most economical for trips over 12 miles. The cost is based on the mileage distance from the point of pick-up to the destination. The price will range from $6.00 to $42.00, with the customer paying only 50% of this cost. Trips must be booked a minimum of 24 hours in advance.
Taxi service The cost of this metered same-day service is based on the rate of the meter fare box. Customers may take a one-way trip with a maximum up to $48.00 – the customer pays 50% of the trip cost. With this service, rides are dispatched on the same day as the request. Trips can be booked 90 minutes in advance.
