All Points Transit provides essential rides and delivery services

May 05, 2020 12:10PM ● By Beacon Senior News

Due to COVID-19, All Points Transit (APT) continues to provide service in Delta, Montrose and San Miguel counties with a reduced operating schedule. Until further notice, all rides are door-to-door and must be scheduled through dispatch. Rides are available for scheduled medical appointments, prescription pick-up, food and grocery needs, and rides to essential workplaces. Most trips are limited to one rider per bus, and enhanced cleaning protocols are taking place between rides and at the end of the day. Fares are not being accepted on the vehicles to limit physical contact; however, donations are accepted by mail or online.

A new service delivers groceries or care packages to current passengers and others in need in Montrose and Delta counties. This service is free thanks to financial support from the El Pomar Foundation, NextFifty Initiative and Region 10 Area Agency on Aging. APT is also assisting Region 10 with meal delivery in Delta, Hotchkiss, Nucla, Norwood and Paonia for community members who formerly utilized the bus to reach senior meal sites. In Montrose and Delta, catered meals are being delivered to four senior living facilities.

For more information, to schedule a ride or delivery, or to make a donation, call 249-0128 or visit www.allpointstransit.comĀ .
