Hanover County is happy to announce that the copay cost to riders who make reservations for the Hanover DASH specialized transportation program has been reduced from $8 to $6 per ride, effective immediately.
“We are making every effort to provide a quality transportation program and make it as affordable as possible to our riders while also ensuring the long-term sustainability of the program,” said Susan D. Richards, Hanover DASH Program Manager for the Department of Community Resources. “Hanover DASH will continue to assess the situation periodically and communicate any changes.”
Hanover DASH provides personalized transportation to medical appointments, grocery stores, errands, employment and formal social programs for those aged 60 and up and persons with a disability. Currently 581 riders are registered for the program. New registrations are welcome!
Hours of operation are 6 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday - Saturday. Destinations can be anywhere in Hanover County or within seven miles of the county boundary, and you can also receive rides to medical facilities beyond the 7-mile buffer, such as the Hunter Holmes McGuire VA Medical Center and the medical offices at Stony Point.
To apply to be a Hanover DASH rider, you only need to fill out a short registration form with documentation to confirm Hanover County residency and proof of age (60 or over) or disability (short- or long-term). Rides are offered in collaboration with UZURV, an adaptive transportation network company.
