Can not call Los Angeles Access Services

Post by mxnerd » Thu Jun 23, 2011 12:51 pm

Access Services (, A Los Angeles County Consolidated Transportation Services Agency

I was able to call their phone # 1-800-883-1295 last year.

But since this year I'm not able to make any phone calls.

I emailed and then talked to Ooma support. The answer tech support gave me is that number is a traffic pumper so I can't call that number.

But how come? This is a public service. Is it Verizon over charging for this number? Or the Access Services? Did Ooma mistakenly identified this number as a traffic pumper?

Tried using WA numbers to call but says the toll free number is not available from my area.

I tried calling with Google Voice, endless ringing and then busy.

Calling with Ooma results in "call can not be completed" after numerous rings. Don't think this is due to traffic pumping.

Have you tried using your cell?

Hi - I called this service and got a direct line you can try from you ooma: 213-488-1748. Their customer service agent knew exactly what my issue was when I asked for a non-TF number. She was great.
The Tollfree number only works within the service region. Sometimes TF service providers have a hard time getting their databases to agree with each other, making your call look like it originates out-of-region. That *may* be the case here. In any event, TF numbers almost always have a direct line you can use instead. It's kind of surprising that their website doesn't list it. Might be nice if you the customer suggest that they provide the alternate number on their website.
