Program Description:

Many in the beaches communities regularly recognize the white bus with the brightly colored Dial-a-Ride logo traversing the street neighborhoods east of the Intracoastal. 

Dial-a-Ride is the flagship service of the Beaches Council on Aging, a nonprofit formed in 1975, to represent elder care concerns within our beaches communities.

Today, we coordinate resources and help develop essential services that allow our growing beaches senior population to lead independent, healthy, socially engaging lives.

Dial-a-Ride has become a vital means of supporting our local seniors and disabled who would otherwise be homebound. More than a simple mode of transportation, Dial-a-Ride has allowed hundreds to become independent and active members of society again.

Dial-a-Ride's mission is to promote the health and social engagement of homebound senior and disabled persons living in Jacksonville's beach communities by providing personal and affordable transportation.

Transportation is recognized as a key element in the senior population's ability to "age-in-place," living safely in the homes and neighborhoods that they love. Additionally, an individual's overall health is not limited to the physical. 

Engaging in social, spiritual, educational and cultural activities are key to one's overall health and well being.
This makes Dial-a-Ride a critical link for our senior community.
