The flexible alternative to MetroAccess

As a result of the continued challenges the region is facing from of the COVID-19 pandemic, the dial-up Abilities-Ride program services (Regency Taxi and Silver Cab) will be temporarily suspended. During this time, there is an abundance of capacity on MetroAccess, and we are asking customers to use MetroAccess for your transportation needs. To promote social distancing MetroAccess is currently booking direct trips with no shared-rides. For any questions or concerns please call 202-281-8984.

Abilities-Ride is the safe, easy and convenient way to get around in Maryland. Simply call one of our participating partners (or use their respective apps) and schedule a ride.

You'll pay the first $5, Metro pays the next $15, and then you'll owe any amount over $20. (SmartBenefits® cannot be used to pay for Abilities-Ride trips.)
