About Beaches Dial-a-Ride

Established in 1975, we offer a personalized transportation service for all elderly and disabled citizens of our Beaches community, from Mayport to Jacksonville Beach. All trips are door-to-door, offering a personal alternative for homebound, frail or disabled persons who are unable to use public transportation.

Riders are asked to pay $5 per trip but no one is ever turned away. In addition to transportation, riders also enjoy the social aspects of riding the bus, helping to relieve the loneliness they might experience as homebound individuals.

Our Mission

To promote the health and social engagement of homebound senior citizens and disabled persons living in Jacksonville’s beach communities by providing personal and affordable transportation services.

We’re Celebrating Our Heroes!

Our Funding

Dial-A-Ride’s annual budget is about $60,000, which comes from a mix of public funding and private donations. Agency staff is part-time and administrative overhead is minimal. Funding comes from the cities of Atlantic Beach and Jacksonville Beach, and from many individual donors, businesses, churches, civic organizations and small foundations. In fact, the profile of Dial-a-Ride’s supporters truly reflects the grassroots nature of the organization. Please consider a tax-deductible contribution today so that we may continue this valuable service!
