  • Reservations for out-of-county trips need to be made five days before your appointment date.
  • When making reservations, we must know each place you are going for that day. No additional stops can be made at the last minute due to our schedules.
  • Plan to be ready one hour prior to your appointment for in-county trips.
  • If planning an out-of-county trip, please call your Delta HRA county office for pick-up time prior to your appointment.
  • Our drivers can only wait five minutes for passengers due to our scheduling.
  • Seat belts must be fastened at all times while the vehicle is in motion, and wheel chairs must be properly secured.
  • No eating, drinking or use of tobacco products are allowed on vans.

Customers also have responsibilities when using public transportation, and should:
