How Do I Join?


To become a DIAL-A-RIDE member, residents must complete an application and provide proof of residency with photo (drivers license or current ID). Approved applications will have a photo taken to issue a Dial-A-Ride ID Card with a one-time fee of $5.00. Applications are also available at Langley Center.

How Do I Schedule an Appointment:

To your destination:

Call the dispatcher desk at 626-307-1395 or 626-307-1396 and provide your name, address, phone number, time of pick up, and any special accommodations (wheelchair, walker, etc). Medical appointments need to be made at least five days in advance and regular appointments need to be made at least three days in advance. We go by a first come, first serve basis.

Going back home:

Call the dispatcher desk to schedule your return pick up. It will typically take 15 to 30 minutes for your pick up to arrive.
