Curb-to-Curb Transportation

Dial-A-Ride and the 5 Cities Senior Shuttle offer riders curb-to-curb transportation within local communities.  With this customized service, you decide where and when to be picked-up.  With no set timetables, and destinations of your choice, Dial-A-Ride offers affordable travel designed around your needs. Please call by 12:00 noon the day before your trip.

Vehicles are low floor and ramp equipped for mobility-impaired passengers. Requests for rides may be made up to a week in advance. Same-day service must be arranged at least 2 hours before your desired pickup time. (Same day service is not available in Shandon and Templeton)

To reserve a trip, call  the appropriate number (see below).
