In early 2018, one of our excellent drivers fell and broke his leg. Suddenly, he needs the very program he was helping us deliver. Life can change on a dime!
When life hits us with something unexpected; eye problems, broken leg, whatever, we suddenly know the value of what we did for others and now what others may do for us.
In this place of gratitude, for all the kindness we see in our little community, I ask if YOU will come forward and be that special person. We ask only for when you are available, some of our drivers do two or three runs a month while others do one whenever they are free. YOU get to choose.
Please call me now and I will get back to you ASAP 366-3344. Who knows who needs us next. It might be you.
Thanks for your time.

2016 is about being on the move! We began with a new opportunity by partnering with McAdam Transportation Service to do a pilot project beginning in February for six months. This weekly trip to Fredericton will help those who want to book regular appo
Each January we have a fresh opportunity to do what we said we would do before, but did not.
As we begin 2015 it is with great enthusiasm that we seek to always improve our community by showing others we care and taking part in a new way.
At Dial-a-Ride we offer those in need of a ride; a chance to be active, do errands and attend to very personal care with doctors, dentists etc.
As spring comes we know more and more folks will be wanting to get out and take care of business they may have put off over the winter and we want to be able to offer them a ride when needed. That means we need you!
Some of the wonderful comments coming back to us are:
"I had to cancel my appointment three times for the dentist since I could not find a ride before dial-a-ride."
"He lives just down the road from us and we just met through dial-a-ride."
"What lovely people they are, so nice to meet new folks from the community."
Now, would you not want to be part of such an important operation? Just call our info line or register here for a visit from me, your transportation coordinator." Go to our page, "submit your request" to register.
Enjoy the ride!
As we prepare for the Holidays we ask you to consider the folks in our community who do not get out, have transportation issues and offer them the service of Dial-a-Ride.
A. You could give them a gift certificate to get them started- call 366-3344 to order. Any amount will work!
B. You could pay for a membership for them. Just $60.00 per year to save them money.
C. You could register with us as a volunteer and help us develop the best Dial-a-Ride in the world!
Merry Christmas and please remember why we give!
