Look for: East Hartford Dial-A-Ride Closed(Or may state a delay)
The Town of East Hartford makes every effort to accommodate and provide services for its residents. That is why the Town provides Dial-A-Ride services at no cost to its riders.
This is to make everyone aware who rides the “Dial-A-Ride bus” that if you make a reservation for a ride and are unable to ride or need to cancel your ride for any reason, you must call Dial-A-Ride at (860)870-7940 at least one hour prior to your pick up time. If you do not cancel your ride this results in the Town being charged for the cost of the ride and is considered a no show.
Knowing full well that sometimes things come up and we forget to call, you are allowed one no-show in a thirty day period. A second no-show in a 30 day period will result in your privileges being suspended from Dial-A-Ride for 30 days from that date.
