After months of planning, the Athens On Demand Transit is up and running.
According to the Hocking Athens Perry Communiy Action group, this program will provide accessible transportation options to persons with disabilities and also provide transportation to medical-related appointments for elderly, low-income and persons with mobility issues.
The ride service hours are offered Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
You must call 24 hours in advance to schedule rides.
The availability of rides will be screened by Athens On Demand staff, with preference given to the registered rider categories.
As the program develops additional rides may be added to the weekly schedule.
