This section of the website will introduce you to METROLift transportation services. Upon request, this information is available in other formats.

METROLift is a shared-ride public transit service. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), travel times and the timeliness of service are comparable to METRO’s fixed-route bus service. Please read this policy carefully to familiarize yourself with the type and level of service METROLift provides. Remember that you have a responsibility to use accessible fixed-route METRO bus and rail service when possible.

Our goal is to provide safe and reliable transportation. If you have questions, please call the METROLift Customer Service and Eligibility Department at 713-225-0119.

Moving Forward Outreach Events

METRO is excited about the opportunity to meet with METROLift riders to discuss upcoming policy changes and efforts to offer more transportation options and greater accessibility.
