So if you have additional concerns regarding your travel do not hesitate to express those when you call in and we can discuss your travel options and make reasonable accommodations for your travel needs. There are several options for customized travel, especially for those in the high risk category.
EFFECTIVE July 13, 2020 due to a recent executive order by the Michigan Governor it is required by law that a face covering be worn in the lobby, van, and aircraft. If you are unable due to health reasons or a child, know that service will not be denied. If you have concerns for your travel as you maybe in the high risk category, please do not hesitate to let us know and we can discuss a more customized travel option.
