(The following is from a press release)
The city of Agoura Hills has added a new, larger van to the community Dial-A-Ride service that will offer improved loading convenience for passengers with mobility devices. “Our new van is part of Agoura Hills’s continuing efforts to meet the transportation needs of residents,” said Amy Brink, director of community services. The van has an expanded area for loading and riding and versatile seating which can accommodate eight passengers or four passengers and two wheelchairs for transporting disabled residents conveniently and comfortably.
The Dial-A-Ride program, operated by MV Transportation, provides deluxe transportation between Thousand Oaks and the City of Agoura Hills with door-to-door service for all residents. Transportation routes cover Agoura Hills and Malibou Lake, as well as popular destination service to Westlake Village, Thousand Oaks and Woodland Hills, including Kaiser and Los Robles Medical Centers. Target in Westlake Village is also on the service route. Most vehicles in the fleet offer low floors for senior-friendly boarding and wheelchair accessible ramps. Children 10 and older may ride alone and babies may ride in their own car seats.
Riders are advised to make appointments a day in advance, but the vans will pick up on a moment’s notice if available. To schedule a ride, call Dial-A-Ride at (818) 707-2005.
Travelers with mobility devices should inform the dispatcher and request a handicap accessible van when they call. All rides are $1.50 one way within city limits and $3.00 to locations outside city boundaries. The vans operate from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday – Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. (No Sunday or holiday service.)
