Transportation

 

Accessible transportation means continued independence

 

Looking for a ride?

Transportation to appointments, shopping, grocery stores, senior centers or social events is needed for independent living. Minnesota communities have different types of transportation services available. Some offer door-to-door (or escorted) transportation, some have fixed routes (such as buses), and some communities, particularly those in rural areas, offer volunteer driver programs.

While all persons 60 years of age and older are eligible, services are targeted to individuals with the greatest economic and social need.
