Senior / Elder Transport
Are you or one of your loved ones no longer able to drive? There are many personal transportation options available through several programs including state programs, nonprofits, and private businesses like ours. We offer convenient and affordable solutions for seniors to get around. By safely transporting senior citizens we help maintain their quality of life. There are many Americans over the age of 65 who do not have access to public transportation. If an elderly person does not have access to public transportation and cannot drive themselves, then they are usually forced to stay at home and hope that someone else will be able to run their errands for them. We understand how important it is for seniors to remain active in order to keep their social independence with friends and family and to reduce loneliness along with many other life prolonging benefits.
*Disclaimer - Please note that we do not provide emergency transportation services. If you have a life threatening issue, please call 911.
Depending on your location there may or may not be a number of transportation options available. Some of these options might include buses trains subways and even shuttles and trams. These methods of transportation can usually take you wherever you need to go for a relatively low-cost. This is a great option for many people, but there are a number of factors that decrease its ability to help people who are in certain situations. In some areas there may or may not be public transit options. And if there are, sometimes they are simply not within reach.
If you are having trouble locating public transportation options then paratransit might be for you. If you have problems with your mobility, then this transportation system that is specifically designed to accommodate seniors with mobility issues could be for you. The vehicles that are used for paratransit are typically buses or taxi cabs that are specifically equipped to take on equipment like wheelchairs. This form of public transit will often travel the same routes as public transit but will be more flexible in the amount of stops that it will make and where it will pick you up.
