My mother had hip replacement surgery. During her recovery she used Dial-A-Ride to get to doctor appointments, grocery shopping and the hair dresser.
After her recovery she was able to drive herself and did not need Valley Transit/Dial-A-Ride services. Her experience with Dial-A-Ride made her second hip surgery less worrisome. She knew she could count on Dial-A-Ride to get her through her recovery once again.
Rather than climbing in and out of a car or pick up she was able to board the Dial-A-Ride van via the wheelchair lift. The service that Valley Transit provided was wonderful. This is just one example of the need to save Valley Transit.
My grandfather rode the bus daily to see friends and run errands. He is gone now and the buses bring back nice memories of my grandpa for me.
Other members of our community need Valley Transit to get to work, school, appointments and shopping. Please vote yes to save our buses and keep our community strong.
