Federal funding is provided to Vermont’s public transportation providers to improve the mobility choices for senior citizens (60+) and persons with ADA-defined disabilities. This program is vital to helping individuals remain independent and active in community life. Rides are provided 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. Contact your regional public transportation provider for eligibility criteria and steps to arrange a trip.
