Transportation as a Service (TaaS)(September 2018)

The Fiscal Year begins October 1 and DFHV has an ambitious initiative to ensure all District residents have access to transportation.

Transportation as a Service (TaaS) is a pilot program designed to overcome transit barriers that many of our citizens face. TaaS is based on providing access to a ride whether you have a smartphone or bank account; accessibility should extend to all regardless of income, physical disability, or age.

TaaS will offer options to residents who register and qualify for rides. The service is intended to ensure a for-hire vehicle will be available when needed. So please sign up.
