Call the designated number for Lomita Dial-a-Ride: 1-866-424-1678. Provide the dispatcher with your name, pick up location, destination, number of passengers, and the last 6 digits on your swipe card. Once the cab arrives, provide the driver with your swipe card and picture ID and enjoy the ride. Once you’ve reached your destination, the cab driver will swipe your card to end your trip and provide you with a receipt showing the balance on your card. No more coupons to fill out—just call, swipe, and ride. It’s that simple!
