How Can We Help You?


Service Hours

AnchorRIDES service hours are comparable to the hours of People Mover operations. As a general rule of thumb, if People Mover routes are operating during the same time and area an AnchorRIDES trip is requested, then AnchorRIDES can schedule a trip for that time and location. Trip requests are compared to the nearest People Mover route for scheduling availability and eligibility. The tables below show the earliest pick-up times and latest drop-off times available in the service areas.

Core Service Area  Earliest Pick Up  Latest Drop Off 
Monday - Friday  5:45 AM 11:30 PM
Saturday  7:15 AM  9:15 PM 
Sunday  9:30 AM  7:25 PM 

Premium service area  earliest pick up  latest drop off 
Monday - Friday  7:00 AM  8:00 PM 
Saturday  9:00 AM  7:00 PM 
Sunday  11:00 AM  6:00 PM 

AnchorRIDES hours and locations change in conjunction with People Mover service changes which may result in changes or cancellation of affected trips.
