Help Keep Us On Schedule
The Gator Lift staff is committed to providing quality service, but resources are limited and the schedule is often tight. If you schedule a ride, please be on time. If your plans change and you no longer need a ride, please take a moment to call and cancel.
Your courtesy will help keep Gator Lift on schedule, add to the efficiency of the service and minimize delays for other riders.
