Dial-a-Ride community forum

The public is invited to take part in a review of the Claremont Dial-a-Ride cab service this Thursday, July 19, at 7 p.m. at the City Council Chamber, 225 W. Second St. The discussion—part of a special meeting of the Claremont Community and Human Services Commission—is the second in a series of community workshops gathering stakeholder input on the local non-profit organization.
The past several years have reflected an increase in Dial-a-Ride’s ridership and cost of service. With the way the program is growing, the city’s designated funds will only be able to maintain the program for the next 2.5 years. To address these concerns, the Claremont City Council suggested the community and human services commission analyze potential changes to the service to bring the program in line with available funding.
Those unable to attend Thursday’s meeting may also take part in a final review session to be held Monday, July 23, at 9 a.m. at the Joslyn Center (660 N. Mountain Ave.) Comments may also be submitted to Cari Sneed, management analyst at 399-5306 or csneed@ci.claremont.ca.us, or by mail to the Dial-A-Ride Ad Hoc Committee, 1616 Monte Vista Ave.
