On Monday, June 1st, 2020, the Governor lifted the stay at home order for northern Michigan. Because of this, Dial-A-Ride has had an increase in ridership and also has been asked to expand our hours of operation. As of October 1, 2020, Dial-A-Ride operating hours will be: 7am – 6pm Monday thru Friday. At this time, we are going to continue to stay closed during the weekend. As soon as we have ridership and demand that warrants further increases, we will increase the number of buses that we have on the road.
