Dial-A-Cab and Dial-A-Van provide curb-to-curb transportation service within the city to all Pico Rivera residents ages 55 and older and to disabled residents of any age. All interested residents must complete a registration application with a $5 processing fee, which is available at the Pico Rivera Senior Center. Please bring current identification and a utility bill as proof of residency.


The Dial-A-Cab (DAC) program complements the Dial-A-Van program. DAC passengers will receive a Transit I.D. card and must pay a $1.00 co-pay fare directly to the driver per one-way trip. Riders have a maximum of 20 trips per month. There is a $5 replacement fee for lost ID cards.

Service is available 7 days a week 24 hours a day to and from any point within the City and to and from certain satellite points (medical facilities) outside the City. Reservations can be made on the same day of service.
