The Dial-A-Ride Program was founded in 1979 by Anne Longley Slusser. This program is housed at the Slusser Center on 41 Houston Drive in Contoocook, and is available for all Senior Residents of Hopkinton and Contoocook. The Hopkinton Woman's Club is a sponsor of this program.

Transportation (by private car) is available 5 days a week (Monday through Friday) for the Contoocook/Hopkinton and Concord areas for food shopping, hospital, medical, dental and other appointments. It is necessary to give the Dial-A-Ride Office 48 hours advance notice. You can either drop in at the Dial-A-Ride Office, or call the office at 746-HELP or 746-4357. The Dial-A-Ride Office is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. If you call the office at other times, please leave a message on the answering machine, and your call will be returned when the office is open.

Dial-A-Ride is a service program operated totally on a non-fee, non-funded basis by a continuous network of responsible and dedicated volunteer townspeople from all areas of the Town of Contoocook/Hopkinton. They donate their time, talents, vehicles and gasoline in order to meet the needs of senior residents.

Voluntary donations may be made to: Dial-A-Ride, P.O. Box 83, Hopkinton, NH 03229-0083.
