Need help with paying for your rides?
If you are Medicaid-eligible, then Medicaid will support your ride to Medicaid-covered services. Contact your social worker or call your county Department of Social Services for assistance with these arrangements. In some limited cases, there may be other sources of transportation support for low income adults available through the local DSS.
For non-Medicaid sponsored transportation alternatives, there are many agencies across the state that provide general and medical transportation supported by the Home and Community Care Block Grant for Older Adults. Riders are encouraged to contribute toward the cost of the ride on a donation basis. Eligibility for this program is limited to people who are age 60 and older. Please consult the Provider Directory to locate organizations who may offer transportation in your community.

Please consult the Provider Directory to locate organizations who may offer In-home Aide services in your community.
