Dial-a-Ride is a special service the New Britain Senior Center provides to New Britain senior citizens. Dial-a-Ride is a bus service that travels only within the confines of New Britain. The cost is 1 dollar each way per person. Reservations for pickup must be given 2 days notice. For members who cannot get to the buses, a car is provided. Bus rides can be used to go shopping, get to medical appointments, make visits to convalescent homes and hospitals, etc. The only requirement for Dial-a-Ride is that you are at least 60 years of age. In the future, Dial-a-Ride will most likely also provide for the handicapped. Contact Dial-a-Ride at 826-3555. Calls are to be made between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
