RESERVE NOW

When you choose to DASH around town instead of driving you will be helping to decrease traffic and improve air quality. It’s a Win-Win!

A dial-a-ride service means the schedule for the van is different every day. Trips are scheduled on a first-come first-served basis. That means the sooner you call us to book your trip the more likely you will be to get the time you request. We hope that you will be patient as our goal is to make the service available to as many people as possible. That means that from time to time we may ask if you can adjust your pick-up or drop-off time slightly so that we can accommodate more passengers. Go to the RESERVATIONS section of our site for more information on how to book a trip.
