What is the cost to use Ride in Kane?
Most Ride in Kane trips cost the passenger $5 one-way for the first ten miles and $1.50 per additional mile, so the fare depends on the distance traveled. One travel companion may ride with a registered rider free of charge. Pace will calculate the specific costs associated when appointments are scheduled.
What are the pick-up and destination points?
Ride in Kane service is curb to curb. Because of liability issues, Pace prohibits drivers from helping someone in or out of a building. Riders must be able to make it to the curb or have a companion to help them to the curb.
