Welcome to METROLift!
On Friday, July 23, METRO instructed Yellow Cab to halt providing METROLift Subsidy Program (MSP) trips due to insurance concerns. If you are a METROLift rider and you would like to request a MSP/Same Day Trip or you have questions, please call a METROLift representative at 713-652-8015. We apologize for any inconveniences and we appreciate you riding METRO.
Welcome to METROLift! The METROLift Program Guide will
introduce you to METROLift transportation and provide the
basic information you need to use the service. 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 brochure carefully
to familiarize yourself with the type and level of service that
METROLift provides. Remember that you have a responsibility
to use accessible fixed-route METRO bus and rail service when
Our goal is to provide safe and reliable transportation. If, after
reading this manual, you have questions regarding METROLift,
please call the METROLift Customer Service and Eligibility
Department at 713-225-0119.
