    2. Pays the store directly
    3. Obtains a delivery or confirmation number from the store. NOTE: There is a four-bag limit per order

      • Their Metro Mobility account number
      • Order confirmation or delivery number
      • The pick-up and drop off location addresses
      • Their phone number for call-back, in case necessary

Generally, Metro Mobility requires the elder’s photo ID at drop-off. This may be waived at the driver’s discretion during the coronavirus outbreak

If someone else would like to pay for the groceries, they can place the order on the elder friend’s behalf and pay the store directly.
