Due to low ridership, GVT will not accept new Dial-A-Ride passengers beginning January 1, 2019. Those who are currently using the service and those who join the service prior to December 31, 2018 will have the ability to continue using the Dial-A-Ride service in 2019.

Dial-A-Ride is a Grand Valley Transit (GVT) service that is available in the Redlands neighborhood. To use Dial-A-Ride service, you must schedule your trip with GVT in advance of your planned trip date.

Service Area

This service is available to everyone - you do not have to live in the Redlands to use this service. Dial-Ride service area is within ¾ of a mile from Broadway Avenue (Highway 340) between Panorama Drive and Ridges Boulevard as shown on the system map listed under "Additional information" below. Those living outside the ¾ mile area may also utilize the service, but will have to find a way to get into the service area in order to be picked up.

How to Schedule a Pick-Up

Riders must call the day before their desired pick-up time, or sooner if possible

    • between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.

    • Monday through Saturday.

    • For Monday service, riders will need to call the Saturday before by 6:00 p.m.

    • Grand Valley Transit will do their best to schedule trips to meet the rider's needs.

    • All riders within the service area will be picked-up curbside.

    • All riders outside the service area will be scheduled to the nearest available pick-up point or major intersection within the service.

    • Riders will then be taken to the nearest transfer point (West Transfer Facility at 612 24 ½ Road or Downtown Transfer Facility at 525 South 6th Street) to transfer to the fixed-route service.

Dial-A-Ride is a Shared Ride Service

Please be aware that the Redlands Area Dial-A-Ride program is a shared ride system. This means that other riders may be on board during any part of a trip, and a rider's scheduled pick-up times or route of travel may be altered so another rider can be accommodated. It is very likely that the vehicle will stop and pick up other riders as it proceeds to a destination. Shared rides lower the cost of service by increasing system productivity.

The Dial-A-Ride scheduler may ask riders to accept trip reservation times that are different from their original desired pick-up time. A rider's reservation time may be different than requested, however Grand Valley Transit will try to accommodate trip requests. Please try to be flexible because by changing your time more riders can be served. Grand Valley Transit asks that you cooperate whenever possible.
