Special Notice- Hanover DASH is Here!
As our holiday season begins, so does Hanover DASH !... a new option for transportation access for older adults and persons with disabilities!! We hope this will be a true gift to our community. Hanover County is pleased to provide this service thanks to a grant from Department of Rail and Public Transportation.
We have now started taking Hanover DASH registrations for Hanover residents that are 60 or older or persons who have a short term or long term disability. All riders must apply and obtain a DASH ID number in order to book their rides. Rides will officially begin on December 12th.
The service will be contracted through Roundtrip. Qualifying trips include trips to medical appointments, Hanover County Government buildings, personal business such as grocery shopping or banking and trips to formal social programs or events. All trips must be within Hanover county or as far as a 7 mile buffer around the Hanover county line. There is a fee of $6 for each one way trip. Both wheelchair or passenger vehicles are available based upon needs of the rider. Rides can be scheduled in advance or within 2 hours for passenger vehicles. Wheelchair transportation bookings are suggested within at least 24hr notice or advanced scheduling to ensure availability.
For all the details visit www.HanoverDASH.org or call 804-365-3274 (DASH). Hanover DASH is managed by Hanover County Department of Community Resources.
