It is possible for dogs and cats (or other pets in a carrier) to be on the same shuttle.

6.       PAYMENT: Payment is expected to be made at the time the reservation is made.

6.1. Reservation is not booked until fare has been paid. For Online Reservations, the Reservation Summary Screen is prior to the Payment Screen. Printing / showing / presenting the Summary Screen is not a Reservation. After the payment has been made, a Booking Confirmation Email will be sent to you.

6.1.1.        Carefully review the Booking Confirmation Email for accuracy to ensure your most convenient travel on our Shared Shuttle. Fixing errors after the shuttle is[RT2] [RT3]  dispatched increases the inconvenience of your travel with Rocket Transportation.

6.2. CHARGE CARDS: Credit Cards are the expected form of payment. Cash is accepted on very rare occasions and only with Dispatcher pre-approval. Drivers do not carry change so any amount above the fare becomes a tip to the driver.

6.3. FARE ZONES: Fare is determined by actual addresses provided on the reservation and the fare zone that applies. If the incorrect fare zone is stated for the booking and the traveler insists on keeping the address in the different fare zone, the only remediation will be to pay the proper fare or cancel the ticket. See FARE DETAILS (Section 19).

6.3.1.        Not all shuttles serve all Fare Zones. Not all shuttles serve all locations.

6.4. TRAVEL AGENTS: Rocket Transportation does not have a contract with Travel Agents.

7.1. Advanced reservations are required to use Rocket Transportations Shared Shuttle Vans.

7.1.1.        Reservations can be made online at GoRocketMan.com, or with a Rocket Agent by Telephone at Menu Option 1, more than two days prior to the travel date.

7.1.2.        Reservations made within 2 days of travel must be made through the Rocket Dispatcher by Telephone at Menu Option 5 with limited pickup locations.

7.1.3.        Reservations for pickups in Seattle, SeaTac, Tacoma, and Kitsap made after Dispatch has been completed for that travel day, are made after you have successfully arrived at the pickup location. Company recommends you have backup travel plans available as our primary responsibility is to our previously booked travelers as we attempt to fit you in.

7.2. Round Trip: A round trip ticket is simply two One Way tickets on the same reservation traveling in opposite directions.

7.2.1.        For a MULTI-PARTY Round Trip ticket, both legs of travel must have the same types and numbers of travelers. Book two separate One Way tickets if your travel is not the same both directions.

7.3. TARGETED SHUTTLES: We call the shuttles by the time (targeted time to arrive or depart SeaTac) but no shuttle has a specific targeted time until Dispatched. For the examples started above, we mention a 7:30am shuttle and a 9am shuttle. At Dispatch, those shuttles could be 8am and 10:15am based on actual reservations. Or possibly, a shuttle is added because the 9am was full and now those shuttles are 8:00am, 9:30am, and 10:30am.

7.4. ACCURATE TRAVEL DETAILS: Providing inaccurate connecting travel information or changing travel plans that effect your reservation made with us, without updating Rocket Transportation prior to the date of travel makes the ticket fully used. Rocket Menu Option 1 is always available to leave a message if an agent is not available. Shuttles are unnecessarily delayed when Company is checking your travel status from inaccurate or outdated information. After leaving a message, look for a new email with the updated information for confirmation.

7.5. INVALID BOOKING: Company has no responsibility to fulfill invalid reservations as written.

7.5.1.        An invalid booking is one that includes a location combination not served, unreasonable service times, or inconsistent number and / or type of travelers on a Round Trip. For example: Arriving at SeaTac between 10:01am and 10:01am for a 10:30am departure on flight; this is not valid Shared Shuttle Language in that there is not enough time prior to the flight and the travel window is shorter than 2 hours.

7.5.2.        Rocket Dispatch attempts to correct these prior to the travel date to make expectations clear. Please carefully review your email reservation confirmation. Call us if anything is unclear.

7.5.3.        Company will fulfill the reservation in the same manner as if it had been written validly; our example: Arriving at SeaTac between 07:30am and 08:30am for a 10:30am departure on flight

7.5.4.        For a Round Trip reservation with inconsistent travelers in each direction, we recommend cancelling the ticket, then rebooking separate One-Way tickets.

7.6. BE READY: In order to minimize travel time, travelers are expected to be at their pickup point ready to load at least 10 minutes ahead of the TARGETED pickup time provided by Company in your UPCOMING JOURNEY DETAILS email. (Call Dispatch if you are unable to locate the email.)

7.6.1.        For pickups on the North Olympic or Noth Kitsap Peninsulas, it is best practice to place baggage that will be loaded in the rear of the van on your porch / doorstep / driveway ten minutes prior to targeted pickup time and have yard / porch lights on. Our Dispatch goal is to have the van depart the address no later than the targeted pickup time provided in the email.

7.6.1.1.              If the driver has not arrived by the pickup time given in the email, call the driver to find out why.

7.6.1.2.              If the driver is unable to find you at your pickup location, (ie: no answer to knocking on the door or ringing the bell) within 5 minutes of arrival and you do not respond to a call to the cell number on the reservation, the van will move on to the next pickup location. This is a No Call / No Show situation and you will need to find a way to catch up to the Rocket van if you desire to continue your travel with Rocket Transportation.

7.6.2.        Have your cell phone ringer unblocked and on high volume to receive a call from the driver if necessary.

7.7. CHECK IN:

7.7.1.        For HOTEL and MEET pickups in Seattle, SeaTac, or Tacoma, it is best to check in with your driver when you are at your pickup location ready to load when the van arrives.

7.7.2.        At Airports when flying in, it is REQUIRED that you check in with your driver once you have deboarded the plane on your way to Door 00 or at baggage claim waiting for your bags. Leaving a voicemail at the provided drivers extension is considered checking in.

7.8. UNSCHEDULED SERVICE: If your plane (information provided in reservation / updated reservation) is on time or early (according to airport web site) AND you do not check in AND you do not answer the drivers call to the cell number provided on the reservation, you are considered a No Call / No Show. The shuttle will not wait and you are welcome on the next shuttle with available seat(s) serving your area.

7.9. HELPFUL NOTE: If you are booking a drop off MEET or HOTEL, make the travel time AFTER the defaulted Shuttle time. If the last shuttle says 4pm, make the hotel 4:30pm or later (6:00pm or later if you really only want to be on the very last shuttle of the day). This travel time tells us your preferences, then the travel window is calculated from that time to provide flexibility for the Dispatcher to optimize travel for that day.

8.       TICKET LIMITATIONS:

8.1. SCHEDULE MAINTENANCE: Rocket Transportation will not be responsible for delays caused by accidents, breakdowns, weather, highways/road conditions, or other factors beyond the control of Rocket Transportation and its employees.

8.2. ITEMS NOT ACCEPTED ON THE VAN: Should the traveler choose not to take the booked travel on Rocket Shared Shuttle as a result of our denial of undisclosed or unacceptable items presented to the van at pick up, the ticket is considered completely used.

8.3. NO CALL, NO SHOW: A customer who has made a reservation but fails to properly cancel, reschedule, or appear at the designated pick-up point by the scheduled departure time is considered a completely used ticket except as stated in REFUNDS.

8.3.1.        Note that Rocket Shared Shuttle is not a Scheduled service and the targeted departure time at the airport changes with flight status updates in an effort to maximize convenience for all.

8.4. CONNECTING TRAVEL DELAYS: In the case of the specified plane, train, or bus is delayed, the ticket may be used on the next available shuttle by that same traveler; you do not need to rebook or change to a specific future shuttle.

8.5. KEEP ROCKET DISPATCH UPDATED: For pickup at SeaTac, Amtrak, or Bus, call Rocket Dispatch as soon as you are aware that your travel is delayed at your departing location.

8.5.1.        Between 8am and 9pm Pacific Time, call the Dispatcher directly at menu option 5.

8.5.2.        All other hours, leave a general voicemail on Menu option 1 that will be picked up the next morning.

8.5.3.        Be sure to include the updated flight, train, or bus # if that changed also.

8.5.4.        A new email confirmation will follow every change.

8.6. OBSERVED HOLIDAYS: Rocket Transportation will provide service by reservation, in accordance with its certificate, 365 days per year.

8.7. INCONVENIENCE: Shared Service includes inconvenience.

8.7.1.        Rocket Transportation strives to limit the inconvenience of time arriving at or departing from SeaTac, Trains, Hotels, etc. to less than two hours. Meaning that if you desire to get to SeaTac by 1pm, we want to get you there no earlier than 11am. If the wait is longer, then we didnt have another option to make it shorter.

8.7.2.        . Cancelling a reservation after pickup times have been sent out via email inhibits Rocket Dispatchers ability to optimize travel and keep rates down; your reservation affected every other traveler on that shuttle and it is too late to fill the seat with another traveler.

8.7.3.        Transferring from one van to another is a normal part of operations.

8.8. LOST AND FOUND: Rocket Transportation will not be responsible for items lost or left on any vehicle by passengers. Rocket Transportation will attempt to secure any such items at our office for up to thirty days but does not guarantee any protection or rightful return. Any items not claimed by rightful owner for a period exceeding thirty days shall be properly discarded or given to local charities.

8.9. HOOD CANAL BRIDGE: If the Hood Canal Bridge is scheduled in advance for an All Day closure, Rocket Transportation will not operate Shared Shuttle Service on that day. Extended service may be available the day prior and day after a scheduled closure.

9.       CANCELLATIONS/CONFIRMATIONS:

9.1. CONFIRMATION of CANCELLATION: When a cancellation is made (online or by calling), look for the updated email showing the reservation status as Cancelled for each leg of travel you expect to now be cancelled. If the email does not show up within 1 hour, go online to confirm your reservation is cancelled, if not cancelled, either call the company, or repeat the cancellation process as the cancellation is not confirmed until the email is received with the proper status. This ensures we do not attempt to Dispatch a cancelled reservation, and also starts the desired refund process for the traveler.

9.2. ONLINE: A ticket cancelled by the traveler through our Online Reservation System is automatically refunded to your Rocket Digital Wallet. See REFUNDS (Section 10) for additional refund options.

10.   REFUNDS:

10.1.                     ONLINE SYSTEM: 100% refund is available up to 24 hours after purchase if more than 2 days prior to travel date when made through and cancelled through our web reservation system. For Round Trip reservations this date of travel would be for the first leg. This refund is automatic through the system not requiring a refund request or human intervention. All refunds processed through the online customer portal are sent to your Rocket Digital Wallet. To have a refund processed elsewhere, the reservation must be cancelled through the Dispatcher.

10.2.                     MULTIPLE PARTY TICKET: Should one traveler in a party cancel, there is no method to cancel/refund part of the ticket and use the other part. The entire ticket must be cancelled then refunded or held as the booking party desires. For maximum ticket flexibility, book individual tickets for each traveler.

10.3.                     PROCESSING TIME: Refunds are processed within 60 days of the refund request. Credit Card Disputes freeze all transactions for the disputed reservation. Outstanding amounts due places a freeze on the Rocket customers account until resolved to the benefit of all parties.

10.4.1.    A customer who has made a reservation but fails to cancel, reschedule, or appear at the designated pick-up point by the scheduled departure time is not eligible for a refund unless the failure was caused by an airline delay or cancellation. If your plane is late but you still have ample time (45 minutes for domestic flights and 90 minutes for international flights) to make the shuttle, that is not a delay caused by the airline.

10.4.2.    Cancellations made at least 24 hours prior to the date of travel may be made to the Credit Card or to the Rocket Digital Wallet.

10.4.3.    Refunds for cancellations less than 24 hours from the date of travel go only to the Rocket Digital Wallet.

10.6.                     DUPLICATE CHARGES: When the Reservation System has charged your credit card more than once for the same Reservation, these Duplicate Payments are not visible on the Reservation system.

Payments for Duplicate Reservations is not a Duplicate Payment.

11.   RIGHT OF REFUSAL:

11.1.                     Rocket Transportation reserves the right to deny a requested reservation for travel in the following circumstances per WAC 480-30-451

Then the exact reverse travel picking up in Seattle, SeaTac, Tacoma, etc. dropping off in Poulsbo, Port Ludlow, etc.

13.2.                     DOOR TO DOOR SERVICE: Rocket Transportation picks up passengers at their selected location in East Jefferson County and Clallam County crossing the Hood Canal Bridge picking up in north Kitsap then dropping off at limited locations in Kitsap, Pierce, and King Counties; reversing on the return trip. Fares are dependent on this selected location. In order to pay a different fare, the traveler must select a location in a different fare zone.

13.3.                     WHAT WE DO: Rocket Transportation operates a Connecting Service with one Direct Van on each route. Additional vehicles (most commonly Rocket Vehicles) bring passenger groups to the Direct Van to minimize travel time for all. Understand that each transfer stop adds travel time meaning that each run is optimized to group with the intent to minimize Direct Van travel time. Transferring to a different van to continue service is expected; this is the primary method for Rocket Transportation to reduce travel time for all.

13.4.                     FLAG STOPS: Every stop with Rocket Shared Shuttle is a Flag Stop in that Rocket Shared Van does not stop anywhere that there is no passenger booking to stop at. Although SeaTac Airport is our most common stop, there are trips that do not drop off nor pick up at SeaTac.

13.5.1.    "Connecting service" means an auto transportation company service over a route, or routes, that require passengers to transfer from one vehicle to another vehicle operated by either the same company or a different company before reaching the ending point.

13.5.2.    "Direct route" means an auto transportation company service over a route that goes from the beginning point to the ending point with limited, if any, stops along the way, and traveling only to points located on the specific route without requiring a passenger to transfer from one vehicle to another.

14.3.                     WEATHER IMPACT ON SELECTED LOCATION: If the selected location is not accessible due to weather, construction, and such, client must select an alternative location in an accessible area. This change is not a failure to provide door to door service. Driver has the final say on accessibility especially in the cases of snow or ice-covered roads. We will not place anyone in danger to check out conditions closer to your location in the off chance that those roads are better than the main roads already in question. Temperatures fall quickly after the sun goes down and the wet or slushy road becomes ice.

14.9.                     Client must accept additional inconvenience as part of shared transportation.

15.   VAN GUIDELINES:

15.3.                     Each reservation books one seat per passenger. To utilize more than one seat, you need to book an additional ticket with the name Seat. Seat would be the same fare as if it was another adult traveler with additional STANDARD BAGGAGE in the rear of the van.

15.9.                     Selecting a seat in the van does not guarantee you will stay in that seat for the entire trip. Situations may arise which require you to move seats.

15.10.                  Communicate needs/limitations with your driver and be prepared to collaborate with other travelers to find a solution that works for all minimizing travel delays.

16.   SAFETY AND LIABILITY:
