[El Dorado Transit]

The El Dorado Hills Taxi Voucher Program is being discontinued effective February 10, 2018. El Dorado Transit and Gold Rush Taxi have provided this service to the residents of El Dorado Hills since October 2015.
Taxi vouchers will continue to be sold at distribution sites until December 31, 2017. Passengers may use Taxi Vouchers (valued at $3.00) to ride with Gold Rush Taxi until the end of business on February 10, 2018.
To provide transportation after February 10, 2018, El Dorado Transit will make more rides available using the Dial-a-Ride service. Passengers may use the vouchers as full fare on El Dorado Transit Dial-a-Ride in the El Dorado Hills Taxi Voucher service area through June 30, 2018.
Refund requests will be accepted through June 30, 2018. Program participants are asked to mail a completed reimbursement form and the unused Taxi Vouchers to El Dorado Transit at 6565 Commerce Way, Diamond Springs, CA 95619.
El Dorado Transit is currently developing a Request for Proposals that will be sent to all taxi companies in the area with the intent of launching the Taxi Voucher service in El Dorado Hills under a new contract.
