Participants will be selected by November 4, 2016 and an orientation for selected participants will be held on November 10, 2016. Additional information about the orientation will be shared with selected participants.

Participants may use the ride credit however they choose until the Yellow Checker Cab credits run out or the 6-week pilot ends. There is no limit on frequency of use or trip length and rides can be booked in advance or as needed. Credits may not be used to pay for travel booked through other cab companies.

All participants must agree to share all ride information and participate in surveys. 

The pilot program will operate from November 11, 2016 through December 23, 2016.
