Our door-to-door service is available for those that are looking to get where they need to go and offers an accessible option for seniors and more. This option will have a driver come to your door to pick you up and take you where you need to go, whether it be an appointment, a shopping trip or you are looking to get to a fixed route point.
All Book A Ride services must be booked by 1 p.m. the day before the service is needed, or on Friday before for service on Monday.
