Need a ride to your doctor? Would like to go to a senior community meal, but have no way to get there? Do you have other transportation needs?
CVAA, in collaboration with public transit providers, can help you get to your desired destination.
The ride may be on a van, in a taxi or with a volunteer driver. All transit providers have specially equipped vans for people with wheelchairs or mobility limitations. A donation may be requested.
Anyone desiring transportation should make their request at least 24 hours prior to the trip, with 48 hours or more notice being preferred. Ongoing rides to the same location should be discussed with the transit provider.
To arrange a ride, please contact the transit provider for the county you live in.
