How to Qualify for Dial-A-Ride


Dial-A-Ride (DAR) provides curb to curb transportation service to residents of the Antelope Valley who live within the Los Angeles County area. Eligibility is determined based on residency, age, or disability.  DAR is available to the general public for those who live in Rural Zone 1 or 2. All Rural Zone 1 and 2 (see map) residents that have no access to AVTA’s local transit service, are eligible with proof of address (no P.O boxes accepted). Please refer to the DAR map below for reference. Streets must be safe and drivable for service.
