3 Qs of Senior Transportation

  1. ELIGIBILITY – What are the requirements, if any?
  2. AFFORDABILITY – What is the costs?
  3. ACCESSIBILITY – What is the service area? What times does the service operate? Are door-though-door, door-to-door, or curb-to-curb services provided?  Is a reservation needed, and how far in advance?  Are rides provided in the evenings, on weekends, or on holidays?  Are rides provided to social as well as medical or shopping appointments?  Will driver aid with packages and other carry-ons?  Are vehicles wheelchair accessible?
