CA: Senior dial-a-ride services expand

A transportation service that connects seniors with vans, shuttles and taxis in their area has expanded to all cities across San Diego County plus the communities of Ramona and Spring Valley.

RideFACT, a dial-a-ride service for ages 60 and older, previously was limited to Escondido, Poway and Rancho Bernardo.

"I am so pleased that we are now able to expand this critical transportation service to all cities in our county," said Dave Roberts, chairman of Full Access & Coordinated Transportation, the Oceanside-based nonprofit organizing RideFACT, in a press release. "It is our (responsibility) to improve the quality of life for all residents of San Diego County and this service expansion is just one innovative example of how we are doing just that."
