The following are resources that provide public transportation programs and assist seniors with the cost of transportation. Information on classes to assist the mature driver with passing driver’s license renewal examinations is also provided. You may also want to check with your local county or township for additional resources.
This initiative pairs seniors who need rides to and from their medical appointments with a volunteer driver to take them to the appointments, wait with them, and then drive them back home. Seniors (minimum age 60) must complete an application prior to requesting their first ride. Rides are by appointment only; a minimum of four business days advance notice is required. A $12 donation for each round-trip ride is requested. No money is given to the driver and no tipping is allowed; an invoice is sent the following month. All drivers are insured volunteers who use their own vehicles to provide transportation.
