Transportation

Who can use it?
Seniors 60 years of age and over

COVID-19 TRANSPORTATION: We will begin with limited destinations. Medical appointments will take first priority and rides to our Center for activities will be our second priority. As time goes on the destination options will increase. We feel that when we begin this service these are the immediate needs. Riders will be called the day before their appointment and asked a series of questions to determine if at that time they are able to take transportation the next day. The same procedure will apply when they are picked up as it will if they come to the Center. The driver will take their temperature with a touch-less thermometer and ask them a series of questions. If they answer yes to any of the questions they will not be able to use our transportation. All riders and drivers will wear masks or shields and only one rider will be permitted in the vehicle at one time unless the riders are from the same household. All riders will sit in the back seating area of the vehicle. Plexiglass barriers will be between the driver and the riders. All vehicles will be disinfected between riders by the driver. Due to the increased cleaning/screening time and limit of riders in a vehicle at one time, transportation volume will be decreased.

Wheelchair accessible transport is also available. If you do not have a motorized chair you will need an able-bodied adult riding companion to accompany you. The adult companion is responsible for securing the wheelchair passenger in the vehicle with four tie down hooks.
