The Fine Print


Cancellation of reservations within one hour of a scheduled pickup will result in a charge of the full fare (minimum 1.5 hours for hourly trips). A no-show fee for the full fare will be charged when the passenger fails to arrive at the pickup location, without contact, within 45 minutes of the reservation time. To avoid a no-show fee, please call 1.888.756.8876 and select option 1 if you cannot locate your PlanetTran vehicle.

Wait time

PlanetTran bills wait time after a 10-minute grace period at a flat $65 an hour, in increments of 10 minutes.


Payment can be made using VISA, MC, Discover or AMEX, which can be entered in your online account, or through a corporate direct bill. We do not accept cash, and drivers cannot accept payment for trips. We will charge your credit card the night after the trip is completed, and will then email your itemized receipt. PlanetTran is PCI compliant and does not store your credit card number in our system.
