Transportation Coordination

Recognizing that transportation can be an older adult’s most important barrier to independence, we connect individuals with a variety of modes of transportation. We also provide limited bus tickets and passes (for those who meet financial and other guidelines) and the coordination of emergency transportation in coordination with community partners including Ride Connection for door-to-door transportation for medical appointments, grocery shopping, and health and wellness activities in the community.
