This is a great service if you are unable to drive, and have a physical disability that prevents you from using the regular city bus. Wonderful people too. Not ...just the volunteer drivers. But, the contract service route drivers are wonderful as well. I've been using Dial-A-Bus since 1999, and I love the fact that I can easily get from one place to another easily. I work at OSU Beaver Beginnings three mornings a week, and I love riding in the big shuttle buses to get to my job, and back home again. See More

Dial-A-Bus fills an important need for those people in our community that could not otherwise get to important appointments and engagements.

Thanks to Paula and Todd Anderson for allowing to put this sign on their property and thanks to dispatcher Kristina for coming up with this great idea and then making it happen. Dial-A-Bus is overrun with good-hearted people doing good-hearted things.

Congratulations to Catelyn Clark, the 2017 winner of the Dial-A-Bus Landkamer-Fisher Scholarship.

This scholarship was started three years ago to honor Jim Landkamer (pictured below with Ms Clark) and John Fisher, our two longest-serving volunteers. John and Jim are in their 30th and 25th year of service, respectively.

We are off to a great start with our campaign. 14 of us have raised over $900. Please help us reach our goal by donating and sharing with your like-minded friends. For perspective, I attached a picture of volunteer Jim Landkamer presenting the scholarship named in his and John Fisher's honor. Jim has been volunteering for 29 years. Jim has given tens of thousands of hours. Let's do our small part right here, right now.

Be on the lookout for our new vehicle! This is the MV-1, and it can accommodate two wheelchairs, which none of our other vans are able to do. There's plenty of room in the comfortable seats for our ambulatory riders too!

Dial-A-Bus is privileged to serve the Santillan family. Their humble gratitude is a reward beyond value for a simple act of service.

I love the folks at Dial-a-Bus! They are always friendly, accommodating and customer service oriented. I like all their drivers. My favorite is Tom, who picks up my daughter, Patricia Santillan, in the morning.
Tom has a special parking place in our home.
