What is the Town of Truckee’s DAR Service?
The Truckee Dial-A-Ride service is offered year round to the general public with priority service for seniors and persons with disabilities. This paratransit service is available for trips within the town limits, over the same hours and days as the fixed route service.
For those who are eligible:
- Reservations are required by 5:00 P.M. one day in advance. Same day reservations are not accepted.
- Wheelchairs must be fitted with working brakes, and motorized wheelchairs must be turned off while on-board the bus. Wheelchairs must be secured in the bus with tie downs.
- Dial-A-Ride arrival “on-time” window for service is 15 minutes prior to the scheduled pick-up time to 15 minutes after the scheduled pick-up time. The Dial-A-Ride has a 3-minute waiting period at the scheduled stop. If the client fails to board the bus the ride is considered a “No-Show”.
- Passengers must call in advance to cancel their reservation at least 2-hours before the scheduled ride. Non-canceled rides will be declared a “No Show”. The return ride will not be automatically canceled. Three (3) “No-Shows” will result in suspension of service. Notice of service suspension is provided to the client in writing.
