Transportation services are designed to transfer persons 60 years of age and over to and from social services, medical and health care services, meals programs, places of employment, senior centers, shopping, civic functions, adult day care facilities, and recreation locations.
Service is to be available to those who have no other means of transportation or who are unable to use existing transportation. Preference is given to older minorities and those with limited economic resources. Personal assistance for those with limited physical mobility is provided.
With very limited funds available to fund transportation services,some area agencies may expand the services available to this population by buying into existing transportation systems that provide more extensive transportation services.
