UZURV Rideshare

RTC’s Paratransit contractor has partnered with the rideshare company, UZURV, to provide an added mobility option that will complement the ADA paratransit service. Riders who opt-in can expect either an RTC paratransit vehicle or a UZURV private vehicle to arrive during your scheduled pickup window for your paratransit ride.

Program Details

While UZURV may not be directly requested, it can be used as a way to supplement paratransit rides.

If a UZURV vehicle is selected for your ride, you will receive a text from the RTC advising that your trip was moved. You will receive a follow up text from UZURV with trip, vehicle, and driver details. The selected vehicle will be clearly identified with the UZURV logo.

UZURV drivers pass a Federal Transit Administration drug test, are subject to random drug and alcohol testing, and undergo an extensive background check.


To be eligible for participation in the UZURV pilot program, customers must meet the following criteria:

  • Able to travel independently (may not be suitable for persons with intellectual or memory deficits).
  • At this time wheelchairs, scooters, or non-collapsible walkers CANNOT be accommodated.
  • Customers must have a smartphone with text capability.

Program Benefits

UZURV is an option to help ease the stress that day-to-day variables like traffic, vehicle breakdowns, and construction may cause on routes and provide an added mobility option for paratransit customers. Paratransit staff will identify eligible paratransit rides to be provided by UZURV.

No Show / Cancellation Policy

To cancel a scheduled trip, call RTC Paratransit Customer Care at (702) 228-4800 or (702) 676- 1834 (TDD). A “no show” occurs when a customer does not board the vehicle within five (5) minutes of the vehicle’s arrival or when a customer cancels a ride within the 30-minute ready window. Each no show is counted as one (1) penalty point. A “late cancellation” occurs when a customer cancels a trip less than two (2) hours before the start of the 30-minute ready window. Each late cancellation is counted as half (1/2) of a penalty point. In any 30-day period, any customer who has “no showed” or “late cancelled” at least 10% of those trips will receive a suspension notice. A trip cancelled in accordance with our policy (i.e. more than two hours before the start of the pick-up window) will not be counted in the total number of trips booked and the client will not receive penalty points.
