Community Support Services organizations provide affordable, reliable, accessible and escorted transportation to essential appointments and activities. Service clubs such as Rotary, Lion's Clubs, Legions, religious groups, or other charitable agencies can help you to get to medical appointments or programs. Many taxi services offer excellent service for seniors.
It may be a volunteer's car, a community vehicle, or a taxi, depending on your needs and the Community Support Services availability in your area. There is sometimes a fee for this service to cover the costs of your transportation. Subsidies may be available.
Your public transit provider may provide door-to-door or wheelchair accessible public transportation, if you qualify (usually for health reasons) for this type of service. The consumer pays a set fare for this service.
