Transportation

Our Transportation Program serves the needs of older commuters whose transportation needs are not met by traditional services. The service is an escort service. Our drivers are trained to assist you in both your point of departure, the transporting vehicle, and your destination.

Transportation services are available for medical appointments, pharmacy visits, shopping, Adult Day Health services, community based programs, and other social service activities and essential community resources. Specialized transportation for those using wheelchairs are available.

Demand/Response Service

Demand/Response is a specialized part of our transportation system.  It provides support to older adults and /or those with disabilities, as well as those with low incomes. The service allows these individuals to access essential resources needed to remain living in their community.
