Specialized Transit is considered a shared ride service. A shared ride service means:
• Other riders may be on board during the trip to your destination
• Your route of travel may be altered so another rider(s) can be accommodated
• You may be on board for up to 75 minutes
• The vehicle may stop and pick up other riders as it travels to your destination
