Dickinson-Iron Community Services Agency

DICSA logoDickinson-Iron Community Services Agency is the only organized transportation provider based in Iron County. Only one of the organization’s counties, Iron, is in the Western Region. Its consumers are mostly limited to senior citizens and, in Iron River,┬ápersons with disabilities, due to funding constraints. Demand-response services are provided within a five-mile radius of the city of Iron River. A once monthly round trip is provided from Iron River to Iron Mountain for shopping and other purposes.

Adequate notice is especially important for this provider. Wheelchair passengers (demand-response only) may require a change in vehicles. People interested in using this service should call the Iron River Senior Center, not the agency office.
