DARTS Transportation Services

DARTS has provided services for older adults for over 40 years.  In 1974, DARTS started as a grant program to provide educational opportunities for seniors. Transportation services were soon offered when getting to the classes proved to be a barrier for seniors' participation.

Today, DARTS provides a dependable and comfortable group ride service called DARTS Direct for senior facilities, churches or any organization interested in group outings.
