Mission

The Health Sciences Express bus services was established in 1973 to move Health Sciences, Harborview Medical Center (HMC), and University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC) faculty, staff, students, and selected medical commodities between the University of Washington and some affiliated hospitals and branch University facilities in a safe, efficient, and timely manner. The service facilitates Health Sciences, HMC and UWMC operations by assisting University faculty, staff, students, and medical center patients and their families in conducting University, Health Sciences and Medical Center related business.

The service provides a partial alternative to use of the private automobile, thereby substantially reducing vehicle congestion on city streets and reducing the requirement for parking at the University and affiliated destinations. The service is not intended to serve as an alternative to other modes of commuting for University and non-University employees and students.

The Health Sciences Express bus service is supported by funding from University of Washington, UWMC and HMC. The Health Sciences Express Advisory Committee is under Health Sciences Administration, Office of the Executive Director. June 30, 1993.

What is Dial-A-Ride?

Dial-A-Ride is a complimentary shared-ride service that provides rides between designated stop locations within the UW Seattle campus for UW students, staff, faculty, and visitors who have mobility limitations.

See the ADA Access Guide for more accessibility information.

Where are Dial-A-Ride stops located?

Designated stops are situated throughout the UW Seattle campus in order to provide passengers access between buildings and residence halls. Stops are identified by reflective blue and white Dial-A-Ride signs containing their stop numbers. Stop locations can be found on the following map references:

What are the hours of operation?

Dial-a-Ride operates Monday - Friday from 7:50 a.m. until 7:25 p.m. Ride times are subject to availability.

How do I use Dial-a-Ride?

First time riders should call 206-685-1511 between 7:30 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday - Friday to request a ride. When requesting a ride for the first time, the program coordinator will enroll the passenger in the program and follow up with a welcome email.

Passengers who need to use Dial-A-Ride for more than four (4) weeks are required to obtain a referral from Disabilities Services. Disabilities Services can be reached at the following office numbers to schedule a referral appointment:

How do I request rides once I am registered?

Once registered, passengers may submit ride requests by phone or through our Online Ride Request Form. Please allow at least one hour advance notice when requesting same-day rides. Ride requests are not guaranteed until the program coordinator confirms availability via phone or email.

Because scheduled times are departure times, passengers are asked to be ready prior to departure in order to help Dial-A-Ride drivers maintain their schedules. Cancellations should be made at least an hour in advance in order to make the time slot available to other potential riders. Passengers are encouraged to call the Dial-A-Ride office for flexible scheduling assistance.
