Volunteers needed for Dial-A-Ride App

City of Tehachapi

The City of Tehachapi has partnered up with Kern Transit to provide a curb-to-curb transit service for Tehachapi and Golden Hills residents. Volunteers are needed in the Tehachapi area to test the Mobility by Ecolane app for Dial-A-Ride services.

All participants in the test-phase of the app will receive a complimentary 31-day pass for Dial-A-Ride services in exchange for feedback on the app’s performance. The new app will give users the ability to book and cancel their Kern Transit Dial-A-Ride trip from their mobile device.

Contact Kern Transit dispatch at (800) 323-2396 for more information and to sign up to test the Mobility app.

Dial-A-Ride allows riders to be picked up and dropped off at their exact preferred location as opposed to boarding/exiting along Kern Transit routes. The service is available to all riders. All Dial-A-Ride services require a reservation at least one day in advance to guarantee your ride; however, same-day service will be provided as available on a first come, first served basis.

Tehachapi Dial-A-Ride services are available Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Visit the website for a map of included service areas and more information: http://www.kerntransit.org/dial-a-ride/tehachapi-dial-a-ride/.

Dial-A-Ride services can also be reserved by calling (1-800) 323-2396.
