El Dorado Hills Taxi Voucher Program Extended until June 30, 2017!
Diamond Springs, CA, July 26, 2016 –
Great News El Dorado Hills Residents!!
The Taxi Voucher Program has been extended until June 30, 2017! Are you a senior or a person with a disability in El Dorado Hills and haven’t signed up for the Taxi Voucher Program? Sign up today!
Each voucher costs $3.00 and is good for a one-way taxi ride anywhere within the El Dorado Hills Community Services District. The vouchers can be used for any trip purpose, such as shopping, medical appointments or going out to dinner. The voucher will cover the fare for everyone in the cab, so users can bring along friends or family at no additional cost. Passengers can continue their travel outside of the Community Services District boundary (for example to Folsom), but will be required to pay the additional fare from the CSD boundary line to their destination.
To participate in the program, you must be a senior (60+) or a person with a disability and be an El Dorado Hills resident. Those interested in registering for the program should request a Dial-A-Ride application by calling (888) 246-2877 option #3 or download the form from www.eldoradotransit.com. Once a completed application has been turned in and approved you will be notified to schedule an appointment for a Photo ID to be taken. For further information call El Dorado Transit at (530) 642-5383 or visit www.eldoradotransit.com.
Registered participants may purchase taxi vouchers from El Dorado Transit, the El Dorado Hills Community Services District office or the CA Welcome Center/Chamber of Commerce in Town Center.
