Cancellation / No-Show Policy
GO Westmoreland’s definition of a “no-show” is any time a driver goes to pick up a rider and he/she decides not to use the service or is not at the pick-up site and has not called in to cancel his/her trips at least one (1) hour before the scheduled pick-up time.
Cancellations must be made within the required time frame. In order to avoid a no-show, the rider must cancel their ride at least one hour prior to their scheduled pick-up time.
Riders who fail to cancel their trips may be subject to a service suspension.
