Federal funding is provided to regional public transportation providers in Vermont to improve the mobility choices for senior citizens (60+) and persons with disabilities. This program is vital to helping individuals remain independent and active in community life. These special transportation services may provide transportation to cancer and dialysis treatments, medical appointments (which are not eligible for Medicaid), shopping, personal needs, senior meals, adult day services, and employment. These special services vary around the state due to local priorities established in regional transportation plans. As with Medicaid transportation, one should contact the regional public transportation provider for eligibility criteria and steps to arrange a trip.
