Service Hours

MTED is a demand-response curb-to-curb public transit system. Appointments are scheduled on a “first-come, first-serve” basis subject to time, space, and vehicle availability. Last-minute trips are sometimes available, but customers are strongly encouraged to schedule trips as far in advance as possible to ensure service (2 weeks in advance is recommended).

Hours of Operation
MTED service is available from 6 a.m. - 6 p.m, Monday - Friday. The latest return trip each afternoon is 4:30 p.m. from out-of-town locations and 5:30 p.m. from Mesquite locations (conditional on availability). Any pick-ups that are requested outside this time frame must receive approval from the dispatcher or transportation coordinator prior to being scheduled. For will-call customers, failure to contact the dispatch office before 4:30 p.m. to arrange a return trip will result in a no-show.
