What is the response time?
During non-peak hours, we can typically pick you up within 30 to 45 minutes. However, during peak hours it’ll usually take us longer to fit you in. As a result, we recommend that you give us a call at least two (2) hours prior to your desired pick up or drop off time since we want to get you where you want to go at a time that works best for you.
We operate a fleet of nine (9) vehicles of various sizes. Each is clearly marked with the Monrovia Transit logo and features an ADA-approved wheelchair lift.
