ASG Dial-a-Ride Terms and Conditions
These Terms and Conditions are effective as of January 01, 2019.
Agreement between User and DIALARIDE.AS
Welcome to DIALARIDE.AS. The DIALARIDE.AS website (the "Site") is comprised of various web pages operated by Dial-a-Ride, c/o Transit Division, Department of Public Works ("Dial-aRide"). DIALARIDE.AS is offered to you conditioned on your acceptance without modification of the terms, conditions, and notices contained herein (the "Terms"). Your use of DIALARIDE.AS constitutes your agreement to all such Terms. Please read these terms carefully, and keep a copy of them for your reference.
DIALARIDE.AS is a paratransit transportation Site.
Dial-a-Ride is a great way for senior citizens and individuals with disabilities to get around American Samoa! Whether you need transportation for work, shopping, medical appointments or just visiting your aiga, Dial-a-Ride provides an empowering and flexible way to get move around in American Samoa for those that need it most. Dial-a-Ride is an "on-demand" paratransit service for our territory. As such, vehicles do not travel in a fixed route each day. Riders schedule their trips in advance and our vehicles provide curb-tocurb service from the rider's desired pick-up and drop-off destinations. Dial-a-Ride is a ride share service, so vehicles may make stops for other passengers. Dial-a-ride service is provided by the Department of Public Work’s Transit Division of the American Samoa government. This program receives a portion of its funding from the Federal Transit Administration of the U.S. Department of Transportation through grants administered by the Regional Transportation Authority. The Dial-a-Ride team of American Samoa is committed to training, flexible to changes and resilient in turning challenges into successes. It is with great honor that we serve the senior citizens and individuals with disabilities in American Samoa.
Our Mission Statement:
To provide safe, comfortable, trustworthy transportation to senior citizens and individuals with disabilities; to increase the level of self-sufficiency and expand the scope of our people’s mobility in the territory. Fa’afetai tele lava.
