Thanks to the Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund, our Dial-A-Ride services are fare free to all riders.

 

Reservations

 

To serve you best we accept reservations at least 3 days in advance for Monday trips, and at least 24 hours in advance Tuesday through Friday. Our office hours are Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. On weekends and holidays, please leave a voicemail for the transit team. When making a reservation, please have all trip information available. This includes name, address, phone number, date, and time of appointment. It is best to pre-schedule return trips with a specific pick-up time. However when this is not possible, the return trip is scheduled as a “call back”. When you are ready for your return pick-up, please call Community Connection. Although we will do our best to get to you promptly, during busy times, it may take up to 30 minutes for a “call back” ride.

 

Trip Planning

 

Please plan trips with these points in mind:

  • Transit may arrive 15 minutes before or after the scheduled pick-up time.
  • Transit vehicles are wheelchair accessible. Drivers are trained to assist persons with disabilities in boarding and de-boarding.
  • Carry-on items such as groceries must be limited to what you can carry. Packages may not block the aisle. No hazardous materials are allowed on the vehicles.

All items found on vehicles will be donated to charity if not claimed within 30 days.
Severe weather may result in a suspension of services.
