FACT reaches 50,000-ride milestone

Officials from a local, nonprofit transportation agency announced this week that as of May, their dial-a-ride service has surpassed another milestone, providing more than 50,000 low-cost rides for seniors.
Facilitating Access to Coordinated Transportation – or FACT – serves seniors and persons with disabilities with affordable rides to medical offices, grocery stores or anywhere else. Central to FACT’s mission is providing a service so people can remain in their homes as opposed to institutions.
“As our population ages, we are determined to enable as many people as possible to maintain their independence,” said Supervisor Dave Roberts, chairman of FACT’s Board of Directors. “I’m just so proud we’re able to make such progress and look forward to making more in the future.”
RideFACT operates throughout San Diego County and is open to anyone 60 or older.
Launched in 2012, RideFACT employs a brokerage that purchases rides from private or nonprofit drivers. The brokerage is able to secure rates that are well below those of private taxis.
For RideFACT, fares begin at $2.50 for up to five miles and are capped at $10 for trips exceeding 20 miles.
The service is available from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Reservation can be made one to seven days in advance, between 8 a.m. to 4 p.m Monday – Friday by calling (760) 754-1252 or (888) 924-3228.
