METROLift buses

Welcome to METROLift!

Welcome to METROLift! The METROLift Program Guide will introduce you to METROLift transportation and provide the basic information you need to use the service. Upon request, this information is available in other formats.

METROLift is a shared-ride public transit service. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), travel times and the timeliness of service are comparable to METRO’s fixed route bus service. Please read this policy brochure carefully to familiarize yourself with the type and level of service that METROLift provides. Remember that you have a responsibility to use accessible fixed-route METRO bus and rail service when possible.

Our goal is to provide safe and reliable transportation. If, after reading this manual, you have questions regarding METROLift, please call the METROLift Customer Service and Eligibility Department at 713-225-0119.
