KART Curb-to-Curb Route Deviation Kingman Area Regional Transit (KART) provides Curb-to-Curb service for persons who find it difficult to access our fixed route stops.
You must register with KART for this service and advance reservations are required. A reservation form is attached and a pre-addressed return envelope is enclosed for your convenience. This service is provided as a deviation of the fixed route bus, rather than a separate para-transit service such as Dial-a-Ride. The fixed route transit vehicle will deviate off the regular route to pick you up at your location. The transit vehicle then resumes the fixed route until it deviates again to take you to your scheduled drop off location. If your drop off address is not along the same route as your pick up address, your trip may include a transfer from one route bus to another. There will be no additional charge to transfer buses when traveling per your scheduled Curb-to-Curb route deviation. Curb-to-Curb route deviation is typically provided up to ¾ miles of the fixed route. However, because each route has a specific hourly schedule to follow, some locations within ¾ miles of the fixed route may still be considered outside the service area. This may be due to limited access or other geographical condition that would require an excessive amount of time for the transit vehicle to deviate from and then return to its fixed route.
It is KART’s policy to avoid backing-up the vehicle whenever possible. Therefore, if a requested location does not have adequate space for the vehicle to enter and exit without backing-up, then we will pick-up or drop-off as close as safely possible. In residential areas, your pick-up and drop-off location may be on the opposite side of the street. Curb-to-Curb route deviation is available during regular service hours on each of KART’s four routes. Routes are identified as Red, Blue Green and Yellow.
The Red and Blue routes operate Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. The Green and Yellow routes operate Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. All four routes operate Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. There is no service available on Sunday or on City of Kingman observed holidays. Curb-to-Curb deviations are available on a first come first served basis. The number of deviations that can be scheduled per service hour varies depending on the amount of time each specific deviation requires. Openings tend to fill up quickly and date and/or time requested may not be available. You are encouraged to contact our dispatch office as early as possible, to schedule your trip.
This service is available to the general public at the rate of $6.00 each way. Seniors age 60 and over and persons with a disability qualify for a reduced rate of $3.00 each way when the required documentation is provided.
