Who says there's no such thing as a free ride?

Adaptive Mobility with Reliability and Efficiency (AMORE) is launching a pilot program grant-funded by the Regional Transportation Authority intended to increase affordable transportation options throughout the region.

Residents of Rita Ranch and Civano neighborhoods and the Vail community are eligible to participate in the pilot program of the ride service.

Beginning on June 26th, pilot participants will have exclusive access to FREE transit-hailing service for the next three months in preparation for a full launch in September 2018. 

Transit-hailing trips are scheduled in advance through a smartphone app. A driver will be assigned to pick you up and take you to your destination, and if another passenger is found heading in the same direction, you may be paired up for the ride.

The service will be available for free to up to 50 participants.

Anyone interested in being a part of the pilot phase of AMORE can sign up here.
