Bridging Transportation Gaps with Dial-A-Ride

Everyone in the Fox Cities should be able to get where they need to go safely and reliably. Closing transportation gaps is critical for securing employment, accessing medical care, obtaining healthy food, and dealing with emergencies and crises.

Dial-A-Ride, supported by United Way Fox Cities, provides reduced-fare transportation for residents of the Cities of Neenah and Menasha aged 60 years and older.

For Judy, a 78-year-old Neenah resident, Dial-A-Ride became her means of getting to medical appointments when she didn’t feel safe driving herself due to a car accident several years ago.

While she relies on this program for transportation, she has also found a sense of community. Like many others who use Dial-A-Ride, Judy has experienced a safe ride and pleasant conversation, making a positive difference in her life. Increasing access, independence, and financial stability benefits more than one person — it benefits the entire community.
