Transportation is an issue for older adults who can no longer drive but still need to get to appointments and other life necessary destinations. All of VPAS' service areas are now offering Senior Transportation (with some limitations) and may be able provide transportation to routine medical appointments, grocery stores, pharmacies and banks when no other transportation options are available. While there is no formal fee for this service, VPAS can advise you on a suggested donation amount to help cover the high cost of the service.
What Our Riders Say About The Senior Transportation Program...
"I decided to quit driving because I was no longer comfortable behind the wheel. Having access to VPAS' transportation program gave me another option when family or friends couldn't give me a ride." Jane
"Getting to the grocery store is a challenge now that I no longer drive. I'm glad to have this community resource available." Mike
