Dauphin Area Senior Transit, D.A.S.T., is a group of volunteer drivers who work in conjunction with Dauphin County Area Agency on Aging to provide transportation to residents of Dauphin Borough and Middle Paxton Township only. This service is available to those who are 55 and older, who have no other means of transportation.
Transportation to doctor’s appointments, therapy, shopping, and other needs to support a daily lifestyle, is provided. Rides must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance but can be done as soon as you have an appointment scheduled. Scheduling is done by calling the Township office (717) 921-8128. Priority is given to those with doctors or other medical appointments. All riders must be physically able to board and disembark on their own as the van is not equipped with a chairlift. Rides to the West Shore will only be done for doctor or other medical appointments. Currently the van service is operating Tuesday thru Friday between the hours of 8:30 AM and 3:30 PM.
During inclement weather, there will be NO van service if Central Dauphin School District closes.
D.A.S.T. is a fee-free service; however, donations are greatly appreciated! All operating costs for the van are the responsibility of D.A.S.T. Rue Megonnell is the coordinator for this service and should be contacted at (717) 921-2727 or (717) 433-2192 to register as a rider, with any questions or if you are interested in being a driver. Once registered, scheduling is done by calling the Township office (717) 921-8128.
