Beaches Dial-A-Ride

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.

WHY WE DO IT

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.
