No-Show Policy for Auburn On-Demand Transit Service

The City of Auburn Transit Department has approved the implementation of a No-Show Policy for Auburn On-Demand trips. A no-show is when a rider does not take a scheduled ride and the driver goes to the stop and waits for the rider(s). If a ride needs to be cancelled, the Auburn Transit Department encourages customers to cancel their rides using the Trans-Loc App or by calling our Transit Dispatch line. This needs to be done prior to when the driver arrives.  Starting May 1, 2023, missing a minimum of three (3) trips in a calendar month is considered repetitive no-show behavior. If a rider presents repetitive no-show behavior, they will be provided with written notification of their impending suspension and the severity of their penalty.  The penalties are described below:

    1st month – Passenger will receive a phone call and a letter to review the policy and rider expectations.

    2nd month – Seven (7) day suspension

    3rd month – Fourteen (14) day suspension

    4th month and after – increasing penalties by one (1) week up to one (1) month suspension.

    Penalties will reset after a year period from the first warning letter.
