LIMITED Van Service has Resumed
Limited van service will resume beginning Monday, July 6th to take van riders one or two at a time to and from medical appointments only. Passengers must not have virus symptoms, must wear a mask for the duration of their trip, and be ready to use hand sanitizer prior to boarding. As the vans must be disinfected between each ride, we ask for your patience and understanding as you may need to wait for a few minutes for your ride home.
