Dickinson-Iron Community Services Agency

DICSA logoDickinson-Iron Community Services Agency (DICSA) is the only organized transportation provider based in Iron County. DICSA provides transportation within Iron River and (in Dickinson County) Iron Mountain/Kingsford and Norway. Its consumers are mostly limited to senior citizens and persons with disabilities, due to funding constraints. Demand-response services in the Iron River area are available within roughly a five-mile radius of the city. 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.
