No Shows and Late Cancellations
A "No Show" is a passenger who is not at the scheduled point of pickup within 5 minutes beyond the reservation time. A "No Show" is also a passenger who changes his/her mind and "waves" away a driver who has arrived at the scheduled pickup time and location. ACT passengers will be allowed a total of 2 "No Shows" or "Late Cancellations" within a 30 consecutive day period. The third "No Show" or "Late Cancellation" within a 30-day period will result in suspension of service for 30 days. Notification will be attempted after the second "No Show" and/or "Late Cancellation" occurrence, or when the next trip request is made. A passenger can appeal the suspension by the appeal process. ACT passengers are requested to be considerate of fellow passengers, as every trip which is not canceled takes away a trip from another passenger. When a reservation is made, a record of the scheduled trip should be made.
