Description of Service
With support from Delaware and Chester Counties, Surrey provides discounted minibus transportation for members 65+ on a shared ride basis throughout our service areas. Surrey takes members to medical appointments, to the grocery store, and to errands. For those who need more assistance,personal driver escort drivers are available to offer door-to-door transportation.
Shared Ride Service
Door-to-door shared ride services are available weekdays 8 AM to 5 PM. Surrey members should call in advance as all reservations are on a first-come, first served basis. Fares and other registration procedures vary depending on whether members live in Chester or Delaware county.
Driver Escort Services
For those who cannot use the shared ride program, Surrey Service’s volunteers provide personalized driver escort services. These volunteers drive Surrey members door-to-door and enable them to get to appointments. While the escort service is staffed by volunteers, there are administrative and other costs associated with this service. Typically, therefore, Surrey members make a $5 donation for local rides, including grocery shopping. For rides outside the local area, a $10 donation is the norm.
