Dial-A-Ride
Call 860-589-6968 to make a ride appointment.


Plainville Senior Citizens' Center members, who live in Plainville, may use Dial-A-Ride to take them to medical and social service appointments in Bristol, Farmington, New Britain, Southington, Newington VA Hospital, plus any destination in Plainville, including medical, banks, hairdresser, library, convalescent home, friend's house, etc.  

Dial-A-Ride operates on Mondays (9-5:30), Tuesdays - Thursdays (9-4:30), and Fridays (9-12:30).

To book a ride, call 860-589-6968.  Please reserve your ride in advance - one week for medical or social service and two days for all other errands. There are no "standing" appointments, you must call and reserve your ride each time you wish to use Dial-A-Ride. Note: For shopping, banking or errands that do not require an appointment, afternoons are generally less busy and Dial-A-Ride is more able to accommodate your needs.

The Dial-A-Ride driver cannot help you with your groceries or packages, or to help you walk. You may, however, bring an escort.  Please let the dispatcher know if you are bringing an escort, so the driver knows how much space to reserve.

A donation of $1.00 for each way is suggested, but not required.
