“HOPE Dial A Ride is a necessary and appreciated part of our lives. Our grandson has autism and needs specialized transportation to his pre-primary classes. The drivers are fantastic. Dial A Ride rocks.” – Shelly, Yarmouth
“I’m in an assisted living facility and use Dial A Ride several times a week to get to my dialysis appointments at Yarmouth Hospital. I require wheelchair accessible service, and they are always there to help.” – JW, Yarmouth
“I make multiple trips to Halifax each month for radiation treatments and follow-up visits. I must be there on time, often leaving town before the sun comes up. Many times we don’t get back before 5 or 6 pm. The drivers and office staff at HOPE have always been there to see I get safely to the city and back home on the same day. The drivers are awesome. This is truly personalized service!” – Barry, Yarmouth
